British Wind Power Failure

30 Oct

Looks like Britain finally appointed an adult in the Ministry of Energy…

Minister signals end of the wind farm:

‘We can no longer have wind turbines imposed on communities. I can’t single-handedly build a new Jerusalem but I can protect our green and pleasant land.

‘Firstly, I have asked the planning minister to look again at the relationship between these turbines and the landscape.

It seems extraordinary to have allowed them to be peppered around the country without due regard for the interests of the local community or their wishes.‘We have issued a call for evidence on wind. That is about cost but also about community buy-in. We need to understand communities’ genuine desires.’

Mr Hayes said policy should not be based on some ‘bourgeois left article of faith’.

Amen
