“The German government made the decision, not just to reduce their consumption of Coal to meet European climate change objective, but they also took the decision after the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, to reduce their reliance upon nuclear power as well.
So they only were given gas and wind to produce their energy, and the one thing that Northern Europe has suffered from recently is a lack of wind.
That has magnified the problem and that bit is outside of the control of man.
We can’t control when the wind blows.”

That is all correct. Fancy a newspaper telling the truth?

I do not like Nuclear Power, I like Hydro, I like Wind Power and sort of like Solar, not many other options left. Hydrogen currently seems a non-starter.

So, if we ditch Hydrocarbons, what in the short term will fill the gap?
It will not be Hydrogen. It will not be Nuclear. It’s not likely to be Hydro, large or small scale.
Does that only leave Wind or Solar?
