Well the last thing you want is for an extremely rare bird being watched by thirty twitchers from all over the UK(witnesses) to fly into a wind turbine and be killed. After flying all the way from Australasia it does seem a bit hard. Mind you if Mr. Salmond gets his way, the Outer Hebrides will be plastered with these bird munchers. As far as we are aware this was a Community Turbine at Tarbert, Isle of Harris, but details on that are a bit sketchy. The RSPB have commented that it is one of those things but Climate change will do more harm, although the Liverpool group are certainly not on message. When will RSPB eventually realise that wind farms do not save any CO². In fact, in the last year CO² has in fact increased not least because of the higher levels of coal fired energy needed to back up wind. Click here for the main story

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
