This blog has consistently over the past decade asserted that the folly of 'Net Zero' policies embraced by governments in the liberal democracies, in pursuit of making the developed world carbon neutral by 2050 is doomed to fail because the only methods of generating electricity or providing the energy needed to drive industry and commerce, heat (or cool,) our homes, cook our food, and drive all forms of transport are intermitteny and unreliable.
As the arguments in support from politicians and scientists have become more untenable and more hilariously comical when not viewed in the context of the expense and misery these whako policied dreamed up by green ideologues, the Boggart Bloggers have, for the past few months, embarked on a project to monior the performance of wind and solar power generators against established technologies like gas and nuclear (which actually is CO2 free as well as being reliable, but is hated by the Green Blob anyway.)
We don't intend to publish results obtained via www.gridwatch.co.uk every day, people may acuse us of cherry picking results and only reporting when low wind or cloudy skies affect sustainables, but as our point is that 'sustainables' are unreliable and on windless days (in Britain solar makes only a small contribution at best,) we would be left with a huge shortfall in energy were to completely stop use of fossil fuel now.
The picture below is for today, 13 February 2023, time as shown. Gridwatch updates its page regularly so statistics are always relevant. The grey bar at the top is nuclear, Orange is gas, Blue, wind;Yellow, solar; Brown, biomass; Black, coal; everything from the short pinl bar and below are overseas sources from which we import electricity.
