A long-threatened planning application obviously aimed to demolish our unprecedented noise planning condition has been submitted to the West Devon Borough Council. It is now perfectly clear that corporate developer Renewable Energy Systems’ (RES) primary intent is for protecting corporate welfare rather than the well-being of local communities surrounding the proposed nine 120 metres (394 feet) high Den Brook wind turbines. For more than 18 months we have been cajoled with specious evidence of false positives, threats of unenforceability and . . .
We oppose the Scottish Government’s destruction of Scotland’s scenery by forcing through Industrial Turbine Sites (wind farms) against the wishes of local people. In particular we oppose the proposed EDF‐Airriequhillart project in Dumfries and Galloway. It is too close to existing homes and has poor road access. It will destroy a beautiful wooded, lowland valley, rich in wildlife, to produce an insignificant amount of electricity. Many millions of pounds will go to absentee landlords and the French Economy. We must . . .
http://chn.ge/VJ0gUn To: First Minister Salmond, Minister Ewing, Mr. Fraser and the Scottish People In 1849, John Muir, a young Scotsman emigrated to America with his family. He went on to become the driving force behind the protection of many of the national parks, forests and other pristine areas of wilderness here in the United States. Without this Scotsman many of the most glorious areas of North America (and all around the world) would have been lost to commercial development. The . . .

It is designed to complement existing campaigns and will hopefully help deliver a cohesive message, . . .

Go to sign petition: https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/Place_giant_wind_turbines_at_least_2_km_from_human_settlements/ Recently, there has been a lot of activity in Europe around the planning and building of large, modern-type wind turbines. We see wind energy as an important contributor to green energy, and we are in favor of exploiting wind energy as well as other kinds of green energy sources for Europe’s energy demands. However, new academic research performed in the USA and in Denmark has shown that the noise from modern, giant wind turbines contains . . .
