SEA-BASED WIND TURBINES SINKING!

This report explains How some UK wind turbines are already subsiding. So apart from the fact that these objects are not going to produce a sufficient consistent supply of electricity, they are also likely to need very high maintenance to add even further to the cost of electricity. In fact the cost of all this is estimated by the government to be around £150 billion, which is almost as much as the size of the UK deficit. But will any of our politicians cancel all this? I think we all know the answer.

I think you are hugely overestimating the costs, especially at your lack of references. The government won't cancel the plans because offshore wind energy is still Britain's most viable source of renewable energy, which we not only need to reverse our effects on global warming but to meet the EU legislation the UK has signed up to.
