To everyone who gave on Giving Tuesday!
Wind Watch still needs help, though. If you did not already, please contribute now. Every dollar (and euro, yuan, pound, krone, zloty, ruble, rupee, shekel, etc.) helps to keep us on line and independent.

A protest group fighting plans to build nine wind turbines on the former Asfordby mine site is planning a public walk across the countryside where the windfarm is planned.
The group STOP (Stop Turbines Oppose Peel) is planning the walk for Sunday (February 6), setting off at 11am.
A STOP spokeswoman said: “Anyone interested in viewing where the turbines will be positioned and how they could impact on the surrounding landscape is invited to come along.”
The windfarm plans are currently being considered by Melton Council and could include turbines as tall as 125m (410ft).
The meeting place for Sunday’s walk will be on the lane between Ab Kettleby and Asfordby Valley. For more details visit www.STOPtheturbines.org
