Large British wind farms will actually release as much carbon dioxide as fossil fuel power plants, conclusions of a new study conducted by researchers from Aberdeen University

Wind farms are another of the Greens zero CO2 mirages, naturally the emissions produced during the manufacture of the turbine are ignored, as are the emissions of the fossil fueled coal or gas power station that has to be on standby for when the intermittency problem happens.

Around of 50% of English onshore wind farms are built on peat bogs or peat based land, in Scotland the total is even higher at 66%: Read the rest of this entry
