Well this is not a new tack from me(an appropriate nautical reference) but the Fishing Industry is at last fighting back. Whilst the SNP have in the past defended Scottish Fisheries, or at least certain Ministers have as it enables them to criticise Westminster, the foolhardy policy of Wind has run contrary to that support especially in regards off-shore. Scottish off-shore is very much in it’s infancy, but with the strength of feeling against onshore wind farms expanding, the Scottish Ministers are looking to the wide blue yonder. Now many experts consider Scottish Waters an inappropriate location for wind farms for a number of technical reasons and whilst not insurmountable, the costs are simply not viable. In is unlikely that wind turbines in offshore Scottish Waters would have the longevity to provide returns and the cost of maintenance would be horrendous and possibly virtually impossible. But the Fishermen are now fighting back and the First Minister should listen less he gets to the Independence Referendum as Alex, No friends. Report here.

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."
