When Professor David MacKay stepped down as chief scientific adviser to the Department of Energy and Climate Change last year, he produced a report comparing the environmental impact of … fracking … to … wind farms. Over 25 years, he calculated, a single “shale gas pad” covering five acres, with a drilling rig 85 feet high (only needed for less than a year), would produce as much energy as 87 giant wind turbines, covering 5.6 square miles and visible up to 20 miles away. Yet, to the greenies, the first of these, capable of producing energy whenever needed, without a penny of subsidy, is anathema; while the second, producing electricity very unreliably in return for millions of pounds in subsidies, fills them with rapture.
