The green revolution isn't going so well.

"Scottish Power — led by a Spaniard, Ignacio Galan, and actually a subsidiary of Spanish firm Iberdrola — conceded that some 71 of its turbines had to be hooked up to diesel generators to keep them warm in December, according to the Sunday Mail, with a whistleblower telling the left-leaning newspaper that problems with the turbines are deep-seated.

"“During December 60 turbines at Arecleoch and 11 at Glenn App were de-energised due to a cabling fault… In order to get these turbines re-energised diesel generators were running for upwards of six hours a day,” they revealed.

"Indeed, the Record went on to say that some 4,000 litres (over 1,000 U.S. gallons) of leaking hydraulic oil was “sprayed over the countryside” by the turbines — a less than environmentally-friendly impact.

It is also worth noting that only something like 1/5th of power consumption is actually the public energy grid. The majority of energy is already being done using coal, oil, etc., in industrial processes that we all make use of.

Even when are successfully using some green energy in the public power grid, we are only chipping away at the problem.

... and spilling oil, all the while.
