The Scotsman

Good for the Scotsman, telling its readers what their country will look like if the madness continues, and how much the devastation will cost them.

In a part of last Sunday's Countryfile, John Craven went to Orkney and the excerpt about this illustrated another horror - wave power didn't seem so benign either, as fishermen and an artist there pointed out. You can still see this on bbciplayer. Prepare yourself for something that looks nearly as horrific as wind turbines - imagine going in search of peace and tranquility to the loneliest and wildest parts of the world, only to be faced by seas covered with these monstrosities.

Why is that "political Greens" - driven by their anti-nuclear stance above their love for the natural world - will always choose renewables first, no matter how much environmental degradation they cause? Or how much it will cost - remembering electricity costs fall hardest on the poor.

Mark Lynas on the LibDem energy policy

Back to Victorian times - shivering in the cold?

There is much to be cheerful about in the fact that we have a new government - but their environmental and energy policies are a disaster.

At a time when we are in desperate financial straights, the new Coalition Government has chosen policies that will hurt the poorest in our society through increased costs for heating and electricity, while doing very little to reduce CO2 emissions. It is quite possible (see this New Scientist article for example) that our winters will become more severe in the near future: are we all going to shiver in the dark?

To learn more, read this excellent analysis by the Tax Payers Alliance.

Demonstration in Germany

For anyone who can make it (sorry for the late notice) there is a public demonstration on the 15th of May, meeting at the Brandenberg Gate in the centre of Berlin at 2 p.m.

There are already 25,000 wind turbines in Germany and an additional 25,000 new generation wind turbines are likely to be installed.

The people of Germany need help in their protest

If you can, join them in Berlin so that together we can show our discontent with this tyranny against man and nature.

If you cannot come to Berlin, please send them a short letter of support.

Messages of support, and reports about experiences of fighting against and living with wind turbines have already been published on the new website:

They call for a global movement against the destruction of man and nature by the wind industry and its profiteers.
