This was flagged by WUWT - a good possibility that the Scottish grid will go down and be unable to bring it back up as there is no stable baseload power for the renewables to synch to. This is expected to result in country wide multi day power outs which in turn can be expected to lead to lawlessness as food, fuel and other essentials become unavailable.
To be blunt, that is what is needed. A 'first world country' descending into total chaos due to stupid political virtue signalling. That will be the only thing that will reduce the stupidity. It might take finding a few politicians as decorations on lighting fixtures when the lights come on though.
" Being able to rapidly “Black Start” the country is a public health priority and, rightly, a public expectation. In Scotland it is presently an unrealisable imperative.
Industry expectation for Scotland to Black Start has now risen to five days and the replacement of large-scale dispatchable on-demand generation with weather-dependent intermittent distributed renewables is the cause.
The PM088: Scottish Black Start Restoration Working Group reviewed its procedures in September. These are based upon Local Joint Restoration Plans from transmission operators to first power up and stabilise “local transmission islands” . Thereafter these islands/areas can be electrically synchronised and interconnected progressively to rebuild the onshore grid.
THE Scottish Government and its quangos love to boast about Scotland “leading the world”. For example, apparently we lead the world on CO2 emissions reduction, LGBT rights and are planning to lead the world on third gender recognition and human rights.
Reality suggests that where we really lead the world are in areas such as obesity, child poverty, state dependency, hospital waiting times and potholes per mile of road.**** "
