Campaigners who fought against the nearby Gwynt y Môr farm said the turbines were “an eyesore”. RWE Renewables said the wind farm would create “green clean renewable energy”. Back in 2015, . . .

Millions of trees lost to wind farms

Eleanor Clegg, Friends of the Earth (FoE), continues to mistakenly sing the praises of, and glorify wind-driven generators. According to her stunted reasoning, these limited and ineffective wind-driven machines will be instrumental and vital in saving life on the planet. Really! Perhaps she will be good enough to explain to readers how on earth this will be achieved when nearly two million trees (yes, that is correct) have been felled in Wales to accommodate her beloved wind farms – not . . .

Budweiser want 450-ft high beer advert on wind turbine but opponents say it could distract motorists

A Budweiser advert could still be displayed at the top of a 150-metre high wind turbine on the Gwent Levels near Newport if a planning appeal is successful.

But while the turbine has won approval, a plan to display the logo of the brewery’s flagship brand, . . . Complete story »

Wind farm not the solution for energy needs

I am delighted that the Pembroke Dock Marine Project £60 million investment has been given the green light regarding marine power generation – it beggars belief that we have not developed predictable tidal and ocean current energy for the generation of electricity – it makes fundamental sense as the UK is an island that has the second highest tidal range on the planet in the Bristol Channel – I have been writing about marine energy for over 10 years and . . .
