When we talk of wind we think of Germany and Denmark as the front runners in the wind industry but, in truth, we all followed where the US led. This goes by even before Enron when the US formed the first Carbon Trading organisation. Long since departed but not lamented. The problems that we have today: Bird Attrition (for the RSPB look to The Sierra Club), Subsidies: state and federal, the Lies and Deceit of the Wind Farm developers. Dodgy photo-montages, consultation that features on the “Con”, houses devalued and abandoned, farmers and land owners persuaded to sign dodgy contracts, tourism businesses wrecked, Communities split asunder. It was all there eons before our own trials and tribulations.
So from the land of opportunity(?) we now have an excellent web site that answers many concerns and establishes the many mis-directions of wind and climate. The Alliance of Wise Energy Decisions Well worth a visit but remember the US was there first. They still have the biggest and worst of wind energy and their politicians, planners et al are as corrupted as ours to the ‘God of Wind’.
