Please take the time to read the following links and report. The people of Scotland are becoming increasingly worried about the lack of democracy being shown by this devolved administration. How wise is it to constantly ignore all the experts who are saying that Scotland is in danger of having the lights go out and that wind turbines are becoming one of the most dangerous sources of energy? Why are the statistics so difficult to find? See telegraph article.
One has to ask the question “Why did the wind farm industry settle out of court recently for a very large sum in return for silence and for the court not to impose any restriction of the wind industry?” The answer is money and lots of it paid for in the form of subsidies. How ridiculous is it for an industry to be totally subsidsed by the public? The money could create real jobs for Scotland.
What hope do we have for Scotland’s tourism and economy when ‘the minister’ just over rules democracy and rubberstamps the way forward for vested interest groups! Scotland gives green light to controversial £250m wind farm
At a meeting in Inverness, Tony Mackay, an Inverness-based economist, stated that, when the North Sea oil fields were being developed, for every £100 spent in total, it is accepted that £70 was spent in the UK. With wind energy (not just off shore) his current estimate is that the figure is down to £15. Another study based on real data from the Irish National Grid, shows that there is actually a slight increase in CO2 emissions as wind energy contributions increase.
