See Wind energy claims are just a lot of hot air - Telegraph
Many serious criticisms are levelled at wind energy in this article.Wind power lobbyists falsely claim it provides energy security,creates jobs and reduces CO2 emissions. [Green group think makes it hard to persuade people of this.];"it inflates energy prices;it drives the vulnerable into fuel poverty;it is holding back the economic recovery;it frightens off tourists;it produces low frequency noise...Oh-and it doesn't even reduce carbon emissions...requires near 100% back-up from conventional fossil fuel power..."
"...misery wrought on my beloved Northamptonshire by the ruthless,rapacious and utterly mendacious wind industry has shocked me to the core."
Hardly a corner of the Britain and Ireland will be free of a view dominated by massive turbines 150 metres high if wind power is to make a significant contribution to electric power. That's because the turbines must be spaced widely so they don't interfere with each other and because a vast number of wind farms are needed to compensate for unreliable,intermittent wind currents.
In the present climate of austerity,padding of electricity bills with massive wind farm subsidies should be abolished. The only victims would be the wind farm subsidy junkies.
