Charity should stay clear of wind debate  

Credit:  The Courier | 11 February 2016 | www.thecourier.co.uk ~~

Has WWF Scotland stopped looking after wildlife in favour of supporting wind turbines and protesting about climate change?

There are enough people, organisations, pressure groups and propaganda machines already doing this.

Lang Banks, since he took over as director of WWF Scotland, has been firing off press releases and newspaper articles on a monotonous basis.

The latest of many was that wind power output in January was 48% of Scotland’s total electricity consumption (February 8).

What he is not saying is that on wind-free days, no homes would be supplied from wind generation.

What he is not saying is that the rest was supported by coal, gas and nuclear which is needed when the wind does not blow.

What he is not saying is that wind electricity is much more expensive.

What he is not saying is that Scotland has a miniscule 0.13% of global emissions and the whole point of expensive, intermittent turbines was to reduce CO2 but this has not happened.

Does WWF now stand for world wind fantasy?
