    n the UK, the 'green government' has been full steam ahead on windpower.

    ' "the world's largest wind farm" opened off the Kent coast last week'

    and...'is going to cost us £1.2 billion in subsidies over the 20-year working life' that's Pounds, in dollars about 1.9 billion

    Who pays? The British citizen, of course...added to their electric bill.

    NOTe: that is just the cost of the subsidies that go to the windmill companies [and they are SWEDES of all things!]

    Who paid for the construction? The TAXPAYER, of course.

    'for the subsidy we are being forced to pay, we could have a 1GW nuclear power station, which could yield a staggering 13 times more electricity, with much greater reliability.
