    Default Prime Time 12.2.13: Wind turbine trouble, Horsedonkeyburgers. Seán Dunne

    Three parts to PT this evening. Hard to draw a common thread through them all.

    1. Wind farms - green dream or nimby nightmare intones Pat Kenny.

    2. You are what you eat - so no wonder you are confused, could be his line for the meat balls up story.

    3. The man who moved to Connecticut brings up the rear.

    Edit: Wrong Seán - it is to be Dunne, not Quinn.

    Repeat Telefis Eireann.....

    Three re-runs of subjects previously discussed at length.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Might be a bit more costly than we were led to believe, as The Economist says the Germans are finding -

    'Yet the Energiewende has become a political powder keg in an election year. Ordinary Germans increasingly associate it only with their own electricity bills, which went up again in January. About half of an average consumer’s bill now goes to taxes and subsidies for renewables rather than the actual price of electricity quoted at the European Energy Exchange in Leipzig’s tallest building. Germans pay more for electricity than most other Europeans.'

    Germany’s national energy project is becoming a cause for disunion

    We have plenty of wind bags in the Dail, unlike wind turbines, they produce feck all, but make plenty of noise......

    They are proving very slow to release her. Some bureaucratic trouble over her exit visa....Or so they say.

    I am a massive fan of wind turbines myself. But I have a friend who is in that sector, and is adamant that they are no efficient.

    Anytime a debate comes up on this issue he gets really passionate. He also argues, not only can they be inefficient as a lot of evidence is suggesting, but giving the amount of cement that goes into the foundation, it takes years for them to lead to a green benefit effect.

    The other option is of course Nuclear but in Ireland we don't like to discuss that option.

    Well if you eat the HorseDonkey Burgers you will have backdraft enough to power a Wind Turbine that will end up making you smell like Sean Quinn after 30 days in the slammer without passing the soap.
