They won't have anything to do with nuclear or fossil fuels but put a renewable energy source near them and they go mental.
What are they going to do when the last power station is shut down? We know the type and they love their electricity so where do they think a future electricity supply is going to come from?
We can get a taste of what is to come by looking at Japan. All Japanese nuclear power stations have now been shut down, there are rolling blackouts (in a supposedly, most developed nation on the planet) and people are being asked to cut back on their electricity usage.
I once stood next to a wind farm and heard the deafening noise of silence. I don't find modern wind turbines any less attractive than windmills.

With slightly warmer weather the vegetables are putting on a spurt of growth. So too are the weeds. The compost, made last year, is full of clover and grass seed which is eager to start growing.
In the picture above I have shallots growing in an old fish box. It's too fiddly weeding it so I decided to use newspaper mulch to keep the weeds down.
Just tear the paper into strips and ensure that all soil is covered. Here and there the strips can be weighed down with a thin layer of soil. By using a small amount of soil, I shouldn't be seeding with weed that can take root.
