Wind facts

Plea for wind farm legal review

Quote from Gerry Wolff in a BBC News report, 2008-12-14:

But renewable energy campaigner Dr Gerry Wolff said: "The wind farm is very urgently needed and would be a major step forward in replacing old forms of energy."

He said he could understand worries over the scenery but said there was a lot of support for the wind farm on the streets from local people and visitors, with some evidence that it could attract tourism and that worries were "misplaced".

Let's be correct

ASA Adjudication on Anglesey Against Wind Turbines

Advertising Standards Authority rules against nimby group

On the 1st of November, 2006, the Advertising Standards Authority upheld all six complaints made against the SOS group and their campaign opposing the proposed Gwynt y Môr wind farm in Liverpool Bay. The complaints were lodged by Jon Lincoln, Coordinator of the Sustainable Energy Alliance (SEA). All credit to Jon for achieving this brilliant result that points the way for many other campaigns, showing nimby groups that they must not mislead the public with their information, and showing campaigners how to deal with such abuses.

This report on the front page of the North Wales Chronicle, 2006-03-09, confuses wave power with power from tidal streams. However, it helps to publicise renewable energy. The reporter asked readers to write in with their views and the letters that were published are shown below. Interestingly, a clear majority are in favour of renewable forms of energy and against any new nuclear power stations.
