Disbelief over claims in wind farm article
Sir, I read with disbelief your full page article about plans for expansion of wind farms in the west of Scotland.
It is not acceptable to use shocking language claiming wind farms can cause ‘chronic neurological problems, epilepsy and suicide’ without backing these claims up with sound scientific evidence. ‘ According to Christine and others’ will not do. We know well by the end of the article who Christine is, her history, her likes and dislikes. Who are the ‘others’?
Your article has caused outrage on Facebook and Twitter - not because Christine is against wind power - that is her right - and, indeed, her view is stunning, but because it is blatantly biased and designed to engender fear. A quick skim on the internet will present you, Christine and others with lots of scientific evidence that contradicts almost every claim made in this article,
but if I may die or become neurologically impaired by the wind turbines that have been erected near me, I want to be properly informed. It is clearly a matter of life and death. I look forward to a further article extrapolating the theories posited in this one.
