Unasked for Move to the Third World

This is why I'm so skeptical about "alternative" energy - in the UK, one of the bigwigs in their power industry has started explaining what kinds of "benefits" there will be once they move to more wind based power:

Holliday has for several years been predicting that blackouts could become a feature of power systems that replace reliable coal plants with wind turbines in order to meet greenhouse gas targets. Wind-based power systems are necessary to meet the government’s targets, he has explained, but they will require lifestyle changes.

Where I come from, that's a bug, not a feature.
