This may be construed as just ‘slightly'(sic) biased but it refers to the fact(?) that 98.9% of the land mass voted NO. Could this reflect the impact that wind farms have had on the Rural population? Had the confidence of the rural voter in the SNP government been tarnished by the over-riding of local planning by Energy Consents and the Scottish Ministers. You may soon deduce that the support for Independence seemingly came from the areas of dense population. That may reflect other issues such as the age demographic and political beliefs of those of the urban masses. And that brings us around to how we win the urban dweller, reliant on i-pad and wide screen TV, to the understanding that wind power increases costs, is unreliable and endangers our energy security in the future. Win the urban voters over and the Politics of wind will change. Problem is that the Wind Industry, aided by Government, have resources that we can only dream off. But we are better, more knowledgeable and speak from the heart. Whilst Head ruled over Heart in the Referendum, we have the advantage of Head AND Heart in our Debate!

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
