We object to everything Renewable Energy Renews old Objections

Writing for guardian.co.uk on the 30th of May  Reporter George Monbiot makes the following statement.  Support windfarms? It would be less controversial to argue for blackouts. He goes on to say that by rejecting all the means by which renewable electricity can be generated, the UK has set a very dangerous course and asks the question why do those who oppose wind power insist on spoiling their case with gibberish? He reports that in his column on Friday, Simon Jenkins claimed that onshore windfarms were being planned “with no concern for cost”. But the only reason for building them is a concern for cost. If it weren’t for this issue, they would be the last option governments would choose – God knows they cause enough trouble!
