News round-up

The wind industry would like us to believe that their aim is to save the planet for the good of future generations. They claim that wind is the cheapest and most readily available form of renewable energy. They claim that each turbine will provide enough power for however many homes.

What they don’t say is that they are an industry that only exists because of the subsidy.

They don’t explain that they don’t power any homes when there is no wind.

They don’t explain that it would more than 200,000 x 50kw farm turbines would be needed to produce the average power of Drax.

But worst of all they do not consider the impact that turbines have on neighbours because of loss of property values, noise problems, health problems or the industrialisation of the countryside around where people live.

There are problems being reported every day. In this  round -up there are links to a few of the recent press reports from around the world.

Wind farms are a world wide problem, caused by wind farm developers driving to maximise profits which are only there because of subsidies.

Enough is enough
