    Protest Against Scottish Wind Policy

    SNP Annual Conference, Perth, Saturday 19th October The Scottish Borders Network joined by South of Scotland groups will be hosting this year’s anti-wind turbine protest in Perth on Saturday October 19th. Supported by Scotland Against Spin and campaigners from across Scotland, the protest will highlight the particular plight of the country south of Edinburgh and Glasgow. More turbine development has been forced on this region than any other in Scotland. The Scottish Government is still denying the South planning controls . . .

    Safety aspects of Highland Council’s placing of small wind turbines in school playgrounds

    A Review by Stuart Young Consulting (Stuart Young is Chair of the Caithness Windfarm Information Forum) www.caithnesswindfarms.co.uk/SchoolsReport.htm An independent expert review of the safety of putting wind turbines on school premises is essential. Current control measures require head teachers to leave the classroom and venture forth to take windspeed readings and shut down turbines in Hurricane Force wind speeds when “debris and unsecured objects are hurled about”. Highland Council recommend exclusion zones for safety reasons – e.g. fall, topple, ejection . . .

    Stray voltage and other threats to pipeline safety

    Charles Rhodes, Xylene Power Recently an Illinois resident named Julie Newhouse sought my expert opinion with respect to a proposed wind farm to be built in Boone County, Illinois, adjacent to an existing major Enbridge oil pipeline. I am told that this wind farm is to include numerous wind generators geographically distributed close to the pipeline route. I believe that the wind farm developer contemplates generator interconnection via home run buried cable. Most wind farms are located in rural areas . . .
