After the last 24 hrs the Wind Farm Debate has been ramped up a couple of notches. Here is a whole of UK wind farm map that is truly devastating. What is even worse is that the map is not complete. Although many feel that the battle is won against the developers, I caution against this view until Ed Davies and Nick Clegg are emasculated.
There are two reports, one on low frequency noise to be produced by the Royal Institute of Accoustics and another on the broader effect on rural communities taking into effect property values and the effect of wind farms on rural economies which will have a damaging effect on the political argument and may create an impossible climate for the industry. Michael Hesletines comments on the impact of the finacial willingness to support wind with a government that has shown hostility.
