Wind power

The article, “No wind turbine should be built within 2km of homes, insist Tories” (28 January), shows how the SNP tramples all over people in its quest for wind turbines to achieve its ludicrous and unnecessary renewables targets, especially when most of the world ignore them.

The whole point of turbines was to reduce CO2 emissions, but studies have shown that the savings are “miniscule to zero”.

The Scottish Government has even pressurised local authorities to alter their planning blueprints to allow even more wind turbines, so there is no chance it will pay any attention to health or environmental issues.

England certainly will not want expensive wind electricity, especially when it can get cheap nuclear from France. One must conclude that this whole farce is a Salmond ego trip.
