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.

Country Life 'Petition' against onshore windfarms.....

I should be most grateful if you would take a moment to support the timely Country Life Petition against windfarm development in the British countryside.

Here is the hyperlink to the Petition, which you can support either directly online or by printing off the Petition form (.pdf) and submitting it by post.

And here are links to some of the organisations dedicated so justly to fighting these trendy industrial threats to our landscape:

Country Guardian;
Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE).

See also this for the 'RSPB Concern Over Wind Farms'.

This PC nonsense must be halted before our last open landscapes and wildernesses are damaged forever. I, for one, refuse to sacrifice our countryside to a so-called 'green' whim that will neither solve our energy needs nor do one jot to prevent climate change.

Sir Martin Holdgate, former chairman of the Renewable Energy Advisory Group, summarises the whole farce brilliantly: "The trouble with wind farms is that they have a huge spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity." Just so.

Philip, for once absolutely certain of his position on an issue. Coffee.
