This is a simply stunning admission about wind energy by the head of the giant utility company, National Grid.

He says forget about the idea of electricity being available when you want it — that’s so yesterday!!!  (See attached.)

North Carolina was trying to be one of  the first states to impose rules and regulations on coastal communities due to projected sea level rise (supposedly mostly attributable to AGW).
