"Forget Climate Change, it's Energy Shortages we need to worry about"

Climate change is potentially catastrophic, but the bigger, more pressing danger to society is running out of fossil fuels. Oil has peaked, Natural Gas is close to peaking and coal will be depleted within 50 years as we use it in greater quantities to replace oil and gas depletion.

We need everything we can get our hands on. Nuclear, wind, solar, wave and tidal, we need it all. To complain that we cannot use wind power because once it reaches 20% of electricity production we need to back it up with a base load power generation is like saying we should not use cars because we might need to walk now and again.

And to criticise the Wind Industry because it receives subsidies! The entire energy industry, and that includes Oil and Gas, receives massive subsidies, grants and tax write-off's.

I am not if favour of backing the wrong choices when it comes to energy generation, but I think Wind is a good bet if harnessed correctly and stored efficiently. Think compressed air and pumped water storage for starters.
