Bad Engineering and Premature Technology
Taken from "The Times" (letters to the Editor) today.....
I am most worried by the billions of pounds being misinvested and lost as a consequence.
Look out to sea at the end of 2015 and see how many windmills are not turning and you will get my point: there are already 14,000 abandoned windmills onshore in the US.
Premature technology deployment is thoroughly bad engineering, and my taxes are subsidising it against my will and professional judgement.

That just about says it all really.
