This is a base for a 100m, 3MW turbine and contains in excess of 900+ tonnes of Concrete. Cement is one of the most CO² polluting elements of constructions today. This will use something in the region of 126 tonnes of cement which accounts for between 113,400 and 162,ooo kg of CO². This is not included in the CO² calculations from the renewable industry. A turbine of 145m would need a base of considerably greater size. Even so the amount of CO² accredited to the UK is but a pin prick to the rest of the world. This is of course only one of the ‘facts’ that the industry is disingenuous over. Looking at this image one must wonder if our leaders are living in a parallel universe. Can they really believe that a bit of Community Benefit could ever make this acceptable to those that live in the area.

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