not necessarily climate change, more just about freak weather - tuesday/wednesday look like they could be interesting.
from met.ie:

Weather Advisory for Ireland​


A spell of wet and very windy weather is expected to impact Ireland on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday the 8th December, with potential impacts including travel disruption and coastal flooding. There is also the potential for wintry precipitation on Tuesday night and Wednesday which may lead to further travel disruption.

I'd like to see an example of what these look like in real life;

"... large numbers of photovoltaic solar panels will be mounted on steel frames in rows, standing eight feet high in three separate fields on the extensive local site "

Where dogs wear hats and birds fly backwards

This shit would drive you mad. There was a planning application for a solar farm around here a while ago and all the neighbours were objecting.

A family up the road sold a field behind their house to a wind energy company, and they put up a huge wind turbine. Apparently the noise and flicker caused by the turbines blades passing the sun were so annoying they moved out, and the house is now unoccupied.

1/2 km by 1/2km is about that area, 8ft high is to close to a normal ceiling. it'd be sorta like a little housing estate with bungalows only in it.
With a low treeline for aesthetics, and without other unforeseen adverse effects it seems like it's not the most intrusive way of generating power. Maybe it makes a shrill and blood-chilling screaming sound all day long or something.

It has a side effect of sounding exactly like dance music through a wall at 3am with party vioces over it, i've heard.

i suspect 'my' biggest electricity use is my lathe. in theory it has a 750W motor but wouldn't pull that power all the time.

'my' as in the item i use exclusively rather than shared appliances like shower/cooker etc.
