Offshore Wind Power

The Queen has bought a big windmill

The Queen has invested in what is reportedly the largest wind turbine in the world, to be installed off the North East coast of England. She has previously had a water turbine installed in a wier near one of her castles and I believe the royal households are all going over to energy saving bulbs. All in all a good example to set to we commoners.

As this article appears in the Daily Mail expect the usual NIMBY nonsense in the comments.
