Blown over

Germany is way ahead of us in generation of electricity from windfarms and is aiming for 20% generation. However, a recent report claims that the cost of connecting all these farms to the grid is exorbitant and other methods would reduce greenhouse emissions more cheaply. Of course, the antis have jumped on this, but I say we should be looking at the long term needs for power supply and realise that costs can be spread over quite a long time.
