Now that the UK supreme court has refused the RSPB right to appeal, the horrifying and insatiable greed of the wind industry will be clearly demonstrated, as they set about industrialising our Firth of Forth for a tiny trickle of unreliable, intermittent electricity, produced mostly when we don’t need it, with the poorest bill-payers in society stumping up the cash.
Not content with covering our incomparably beautiful landscapes, so that wind farms are now visible from more than 60 per cent of Scotland, they are now intent on ruining our pristine, sparkling horizons with their giant, industrial bird-mincers, where the ensuing carnage can be kept hidden.
The ever-gullible Scottish Government continues to be duped by the wind industry and wilfully ignores the expert advice of the dedicated RSPB specialists who describe the proposals as “among the most damagingoffshorewindfarms for seabirds in the world” and thefirthofforthas“ofinternational importance to wildlife”. This blatant disregard for our birdlife certainly ‘blows’ the feigned environmental credibility of WWF and the Scottish Government out of the water! GEORGE HERRAGHTY LOTHLORIEN
