Can anyone confirm that current environmental law requires that turbines in Scotland be removed from site after 25 years and that wind farms sites be restored to their original landscape?
Who will pay for this clearing/reinstatement process?
What will happen to the power infrastructure network that currently serves these existing sites?
Given that all the best/preferred sites have been currently utilised where will the new windfarms replacing the scenically reinstated sites be located to ensure continuing supply in 20 odd years time?
Windfarms are not only destroying the beauty, environemnt , ecology and a multitude of other things they are actually contributing to global warming – they will never in their lifetime save the CO2 that it requires to make the B****y things. Assuming CO2 is actually causing it, we have to take on board the fact that it has been cooler in past history when CO2 levels were higher and warmer when they were lower and mountains of other findings contradictory to the theory. They (Wind turbines) are at best symbols for misguided hippies who mince around as if they have just been to a 3 day open air festival twiddling their fingers beneath their chins. But at worst the biggest social con in the history of society. There is such big money involved that you are up against one of the biggest PR exersises ever seen and you’re going to need every penny Trump gives you.
I used to want independence for Scotland almost more than anything, purely because a country should be required to be independent if it can be, for the good of it’s people and those around them. But Trump is right when he says Salmond has done more damage to the place than any sigle event in history. Salmond is not a stupid man either, he knows what windfarms are. Independence excites me no more…..
Frank How nice it is to read a sensible, polite letter. How nice that some of the people who read our blog are passionate about Scotland as we are. Thank you for your comments.
Well you have done yourselves no good what so ever in your campaign by tying yourself up with Donald Trump.
It is so obvious to everyone what his motivation is and it is not the environment.
While i do not support your cause on everything I read your web page and take a keen interest in what you are fighting for and in discussions with other people who are blind to the fact that not all wind farm development is good for the environment I have supported your arguement but i am afraid if you take up this invitation( if you have not already done so) you will do your campaign no good and will do your future campaigns no good in the future. I for one will not be supporting your organisatiion again
We don’t think any wind farms are good for the environment but the subject of wind farms cover a whole variety of issues. Fuel poverty, environmental issues, public health, planning issues etc We do have many supporters who understand our reasons for our involvement with Mr Trump. We need to get a far bigger campaign off the ground and soon or else at this rate it will be too late to do anything and we may as well all give up. Susan and I cannot carry on the way we have been doing using our own finances to travel and print documents etc. We hope to build a good relationship with the Trump org and continue the fight against the wind industry. I am sorry you feel the way that you do but you must do what you feel is best for you.
How much is Donald Trump paying you? Tell the truth for a change.
Money has not been mentioned and we will not enter into this kind of conversation with a stranger. We wouldn’t be rude enough to ask how much you earn and quite frankly we are not interested.
