Millions of pounds are being poured into “wind farms” around Loch Ness but wind has dropped off; last winter saw three months of severe cold weather but absolutely no wind – just when it’s energy was most needed.
Professor Kettle believes that the entire wind energy strategy should be scrapped: “We have dependable tidal power so harness that, for the stupid ugly wind turbines”. The professor is usually right and is also worried that Nessie, The Loch Ness Monster, will be harmed. “The wind turbines physically smash up our treasured birds like Golden Eagles but the vibrations they put into the soil may also upset cryptids like the Loch Ness Monster”.
