The BWEA published what it called the ‘Top Myths about Wind Energy’ (1-15) and what it claimed were the true ‘facts’. These are still on its web site where they are trotted out by green organisations in defence of wind farms. Below, we provide a set of independent comments which show how the BWEA has been selective in its answers and economic with the truth.
Readers should be aware that the BWEA is not an academic or philanthropic body looking after the interests of the Earth and the British people. It is a trade body with over 500 member companies, all of whom seek to make profits from renewables, especially wind farms. While there is nothing wrong with his, it does mean that the BWEA are not a neutral body and are, therefore, most likely to provide partial information that is most likely to further their members’ profits and interests rather than promote the truth.
