Wind V. Coal
Quote of the Decade

Sir Martin Holgate, Chief Scientist at the Department of the Environment of the British Government - October 2004

Wrapping oneself or one’s message in the Union flag is the device of a scoundrel. It is unpatriotic and disrespectful to the flag. It says louder than anything that there is no validity in the message that is put about. … Continue reading

Electric cars emit 147 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer when powered by conventional electricity — much more than a petrol-powered vehicle. Five milligrams of mercury are found in a single energy-saving light bulb, which means they must be disposed … Continue reading
Building of wind turbines often occurs out of sight and many developers do all they can to prevent locals accessing the site. In this video you can see what is entailed in the construction of just one industrial wind machine.
Ignoring the Free bit in it’s basic form which is an obfurscation of the truth, I have come across some information as to the claim that wind is green. Apart from the Neodynium used for the turbine magnets, which are … Continue reading
