Time for Solar Energy and Wind Farm Supporters to Stop Living in the Stone Age

Daniel Greenfield –Frontpage Magazine — September 20, 2013

Sometimes environmentalists get a bit confused and they can be forgiven for that. It can’t be easy living in perpetual ignorance while shivering every time the volcano god rumbles and Al Gore forewarns another warm winter unless a few virginal carbon credits are sacrificed.

Mr Davey, the Liberal Democrat Energy Secretary, accused Conservatives of attempting to “destroy” the UK’s renewables industry.

The Daily Telegraph last month disclosed that officials in Mr Davey’s energy department have attempted to block a report commissioned by Mr Paterson on the impact of wind farms on the countryside.

Government sources claimed that Mr Davey was concerned that the report, which will also examine how turbines affect house prices, would not “fit with Lib Dem ideology on wind farms”.

In his speech to the Lib Dem conference in Glasgow, Mr Davey said that he is being forced to fight “battles” with Mr Paterson over wind turbines.

“Take the battles I fight over wind power,” Mr Davey said. “Owen Paterson would cull wind turbines faster than he can cull badgers.

“But we have prevented the stone age wing of the Conservative Party from destroying our leading renewables industry.”

However, Mr Davey said that it is wrong to suggest that fracking “answers all Britain’s energy problems”.

Windmills have been around for over 2000 years. Wind turbines have been around since 1887. They’re not exactly a groundbreaking technology.   Read full article, here…..
