The epilogue of Hutton’s Arse: 3 billion years of extraordinary geology in Scotland’s Northern Highlands concerns itself with the threat of windfarms:
The Highlands are being humiliated by windfarm developers who insist they are saving the environment. How can the blade of a bulldozer ripping up 6000 years of beautifully preserved archaeology be saving the environment? How can the turbine blades smashing a Golden Eagle to bits be saving the environment? Buy this book. I hope you enjoy it. Your support will help to fight this unbelievable stupidity.
“Malcolm has long lived with his family in the remote Northern Highlands of Scotland. His admiration and scientific interest in the area’s beautiful countryside inspired the writing of Hutton’s Arse. Today, controversial developments in the Highlands are beginning to cause concern among locals and may be damaging the area for the future. Malcolm hopes that this book will help in an understanding of the qualities of the area and contribute towards its sensible conservation.”
