Much ado about so very little 

Credit:  The Herald | 20 January 2016 | www.heraldscotland.com ~~

Despite more than five million trees felled to make room, Hundreds of miles of bulldozed tracks, our finest landscapes trashed by multinationals, giant pylons scarring our beautiful countryside, Drumochter Pass completely vandalised, thousands of tons of concrete dumped on our fragile upland ecosystems, millions of birds and bats needlessly slaughtered, wind farms visible from 60 per cent of Scotland, tourists deterred by industrialised landscapes, the highest energy bills in Europe, countless millions extorted from the poorest bill payers, multinationals and landowners trousering millions – despite all this, during our coldest night so far, when we need power most wind’s contribution to the National Grid, to the nearest round figure is zero (precisely 0.15 per cent).

George Herraghty,

Lothlorien, Lhanbryde, Moray.
