Solar power skeptics enjoy two glorious hours

OPPONENTS of solar power have been having an excellent morning.

The renewable energy skeptics made the most of a once-in-a-decade opportunity to cluck and hoot in derision at solar panels between the hours of 8.30 and 10.30am.

Julian Cook said: “For the last two hours I’ve been able to harp on about how solar power was always going to end in tears.

“I’ve been burning some coal I carry around with me to generate my own power – proper old-school power.”

He added: “This whole ‘sun’ fad was always going to die out. Imagine trying to get energy from a ball of hot plasma with a mass 330,000 times that of Earth.

“It’s insane.”
