Adding spin to debate  

Matt Partridge, who sells Gamesa wind turbines in return for an outlandishly large subsidy, is circularising Welsh newspapers with various bits of evidence for global warming (Have Your Say, March 29).

What has global warming got to do with the need, or otherwise, for wind turbines? Nothing – because the Government’s own figure for saving the UK’s CO2 emission by renewable power generation, mainly wind, is just 9.2 million tonnes per year by 2010.

This is less than the emission from a single, medium-sized coal-fired power station, and is less than four ten-thousandths (0.0004) of global CO2 emission, and stands no chance of altering atmospheric CO2 concentration, still less deflecting climate change, as Mr Partridge’s advertising spiel implies.
