The RSPB are well noted for their stance, or lack of it, on wind farms. For a number of years they had an energy deal with SSE. Now they have a new dual fuel deal with Ecotricity. A recent article by James Delingpole is illuminating and exposes the organisation as a money grubbing politically motivated organisation far removed from it’s original remit. Should it remain with charitable status? They cling to the outdated notion that man made climate change will kill more birds than wind turbines but recent evidence points out that Climate Change has stalled. Not so their support for Renewable(wind) energy. James Delingpole’s article.

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."
