Local residents, Bob Graham (writer of letter in ‘The Northern Scot’, October 5) and other interested folk may wish to ask Natural Power at their forthcoming open days what I asked Fred Olsen Renewables at their Aberlour wind farm last month.
I presented a letter asking if they could deny that mechanical vibrations from their turbines may devastate invertebrates, arthropods, fungi, bio-aerosols, land fertility – all at the base of the food chain – and the structure of peat itself, causing its collapse and the rotting pollution of waterways that neither the whisky industry nor tourism would welcome.
Technical representatives couldn’t, and a senior executive refused to answer, rudely wanting to know who I was. So I have written to the Fred Olsen HQ in Norway, and await their response with great interest.
I wonder what Natural Power would say? – Yours etc,
