Many thanks to Private Eye for this “advert” for the latest wind turbines. As orders fall for the normal ugly white monstrosties, a new range is in the wings. Fergus Ewing, our Tourism and Energy Minister, is very excited and is hopeful of a massive growth of these new fangled models to be installed on the Western Isles. It is thought that with their palm tree like looks and Global Warming (Sorry Fergus, that was just spin-ed) the future of Tourism will be assured. He was also impressed that each farm came with it’s own sun! (Sorry Fergus, that’s because the picture is supposed to be on a sunny Caribbbean island-ed) It is rumoured that the First Minister has bought a new pair of trousers to match the island theme for the forthcoming planting ceremony. Sounds far more environmentally sensitive than installation on a thousand tons of concrete.

Wind V. Coal
Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
