Founded on a lie
An adjudication by the Advertising Standards Authority, released on 21
December, confirms that the wind power industry has duped the country, despite
repeated warnings from critics. Every new development, most recently the
outrageous approval of Glenmoriston at Loch Ness, is hailed as saving the
emission of thousands of tonnes of a year .
The ASA adjudication says
that, during the life of these industrial monstrosities, they will save only
half of the emissions claimed. In many cases it was the promised saving of that
swayed the votes of councillors and planners. Thus the Glenmoriston permission
is founded on a lie.
The more realistic saving of CO2, accepted by the
ASA is based on the average fuel mixture use by power stations. Gas-fired
generation provides an increasing amount of our electricity, with lesser output,
so in future, wind power will displace less and less emission. The landscape is
being raped with governmental collusion and fraudulent claims.
