A Weblog monitoring coverage of environmental issues and science in the UK media. By Professor Emeritus Philip Stott. The aim is to assess whether a subject is being fairly covered by press, radio, and television. Above all, the Weblog will focus on science, but not just on poor science. It will also bring to public notice good science that is being ignored because it may be politically inconvenient.

Famous conservationist exposes the wind farm "scam".....

In what can only be described as one of the most excoriating letters against wind farms I have ever read, the famous conservationist, Professor David Bellamy, lays waste to any claims that this source of energy is good for the environment ('Come clean about wind farms', Letters, Country Life, February 19, p. 56). It is a magisterial piece of writing. I especially enjoyed:

"... I beg those green organisations that have been sucked into the vortex of vested interests that are pushing this environmental scam to come clean."

It now appears that wind farms are opposed by two of our finest environmental gurus - James Lovelock, of 'Gaia' fame, and David. It really is time for government to drop this folly of an energy policy.

Philip, with David B. 100%.
