Wind power poll raises suspicions  

Credit:  www.scotsman.com 6 May 2012 ~~

The poll in Scotland on Sunday (22 April) asked one simple question: “Do you agree with Donald Trump that wind farms are a blot on the Scottish landscape?” The result was, Yes 83 per cent, No 17 per cent.

This result was in stark contrast to very recent polls by Friends of the Earth Scotland and WWF Scotland which claimed overwhelming support in Scotland for such renewable developments. It has now come to light that WWF Scotland and FoE Scotland and even the RSPB have been in receipt of substantial sums from the wind industry. WWF Scotland for example has now admitted to having received more than £22,500 in the past year from one of the UK’s biggest energy firms, Scottish and Southern Energy. Friends of the Earth Scotland meanwhile has been given £11,000 by Scottish Power and RSPB Scotland has admitted links with some wind farm developers.

Is it any wonder that these so-called “environmental” groups are so pro-wind, even at times almost to the point of evangelising on the matter?
