Looks interesting, but seems to apply to wind farms on peat bogs only.
As is always in these circumstances I would rather judge after reading
the original scientific paper rather than take the views of an article
in a right-wing newspaper at face value, which is highly likely to be
biased against anything resembling renewable energy.

Adam

Did you ever give me an answer as to if you had some link with either UKMO or a government based organisation.

Really? Have you installed your renewable energy yet. No solar panels or windmills when I last looked and two cars if I remember correctly or is hypocrisy the new principled position nowadays in the world of the left. Hold on it always was , silly billy me.

Although in this particular case on peat they could well be right. Just
because most stuff written in the Torygraph is rightwing trash does not
mean that all of it is. Sometimes they even get science stories right!
