Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
PS. Germany's average capacity factor includes really old turbines very poorly sited by greedy fringe capitalists. Modern turbines near 20% in the worst of sites, and well above 30% (topping perhaps 36%) in the coastal north. But even older turbines in the north reach 30% CF.

Offshore ranges from lower 40's to near 55%. In some cases better than gas plants. With no fuel costs, or CO2 damage, or small particles in the lungs, or national security issues.

Fuck the dangerous well-funded "experts" who will be judged as social criminals by future generations, should those future generations survive.

Am i beginning to make myself clear about what's at stake in the original article.
