Mad dash for wind power and money  

The whole debate about the Lewis wind farms illustrates precisely what I have always known the mad dash for wind power in Scotland is all about.

It’s about big money; not about saving the planet.

That notion is merely the vehicle for selling wind power to a gullible public. The wholesale industrialisation of our landscape cannot be justified by exaggerated claims about a net reduction of carbon emissions.

In any case, it makes no sense at all to tackle one environmental problem by creating another.

These giant corporations induce local communities to sell their birthright for a tiny part of the enormous, subsidised, profit to be made.

Morally, the landscape is not theirs to sell. It’s not just their backyard, it’s everybody’s backyard. It belongs to all of Scotland’s people.

Andrew Mitchell, 4 Glenpark Avenue, Prestwick.
