The debate about whether wind power is efficient and effective has been going on for years and the wind farm campaigners have lost the argument.
Not only is this one of the most expensive and inefficient ways to produce power – in high winds they do not work at all – but they are also destroying our countryside, with once-beautiful scenery ruined by ugly developments.
Most people accept the debate’s outcome so it is worrying, to put it mildly, that the trade association Renewables Uk is hiring a band of “Swampies” to champion the wind farm cause.
In its attempt to go against the wishes of the vast majority this is nothing short of sinister. Eco-campaigners are often extremists incapable of listening to reason and have been known to be violent in pursuit of their cause. To hire a band of activists to fight proposals by democratically elected MPs to cut subsidies to wind farms is shaming.
Do these Swampies realise they are being used? The vested interests behind building more wind farms have nothing to do with preserving the environment and everything to do with harvesting massive profits. an unworthy group of capitalists are paying others to do their dirty work.
It is time for some common sense: wind power does not work and never will. It is time for the Government to bow to the inevitable and build more nuclear power stations. Why wait?
