    Wind Turbines

    Scotland's filling up, they are lining the M8 now.
    What's the rest of the UK like ?

    Local residents will be able to block all future onshore wind farms under new measures to be fast-tracked into law, the new energy secretary has announced. “It will mean no more onshore wind farm subsidies and no more onshore wind farms without local community support.” In an interview with The Sunday Times Amber Rudd also said the Tory government would kick-start a shale gas revolution and loosen rules so it could be extracted from under national parks. --Tim Shipman, The Sunday Times, 17 May 2015

    Of course I've no idea what will happen in the Socialist Republic of North Korea, errr, Scotland, but none the less it is progress.

    Makes the current Scottish land reform issue seem like an amateur dabble too, since it will allow the State to help itself to (or sell) resources that currently belong to the holders of title in the overlying land, without compensation (except for access damage)

    I know that I frequently oversimplify things but does anyone else think that it might be a bad idea to break up the rocks under the island that we live on?

    Funny I thought this may be another reason for the sudden interest in the Scottish Government owning other people's land after forcing them to sell a while back.......

    Rest of UK not AS bad, but getting there. They don't 'benefit' from the local dictatorship calling in all the applications and voting in favour.

    The Scottish government seems to be against the extraction of shale gas etc.
    Looks they could be headed for a wee, or maybe a rather large, confrontation with the owner of INEOS.

    But the thread is about wind turbines.

    They are not only hideous, but environmentally unsound. They do not produce enough energy to recoup the energy required to produce them ( which has to come from oil, coal, gas, and nuclear electric power generation - all of which are more efficient and therefore, cheaper ). But they look clean to the untrained eye of hippies and "environmentalists". And, with the huge subsidies from government, they are profitable for the large corporations which manufacture them, and cronies of politicians who get to set up money-losing "green" ventures and run them dry.
