Let us stick to the facts on using wind turbines  

I was interested to read the report about job creation from windfarms.

Energy Minister Malcolm Wicks reiterates all the junk science and misinformation concerning this subject.Let us stick to facts. More than 5,000 two-megawatt wind turbines would be needed to match the output of Drax power station alone.

More than 30,000 of the monstrous three-megawatt turbines would be needed to meet our ill-advised EU ‘renewable’ targets. No conventional power plants could be decommissioned because they are needed as back-up.

Take note of the failed German and Danish experiments.

What we are facing is the biggest desecration of the landscape since the industrial revolution, the biggest potential taxpayer subsidies for foreign-owned and manufactured machines and an unprecedented increase in energy costs based on EU-sponsored, greeny box-ticking nonsense.
