In 1849, John Muir, a young Scotsman emigrated to America with his family. He went on to become the driving force behind the protection of many of the national parks, forests and other pristine areas of wilderness here in the United States.
Canadian born James B. Harkin, a disciple of John Muir, shared his fervent belief in the recreational, aesthetic, and spiritual values of unspoiled wilderness, and is often called ‘the Father of National Parks. in Canada.
Without this Scotsman, John Muir, many of the most glorious areas of North America would have been lost to commercial development.
The signers of this petition, all hailing from the United States and Canada, would like to return the favor to the people, fauna, and flora of Scotland.
Each of the signers would like you to know:
We are not coming to Scotland to see your wind power plants.
We are not going to spend our hard-earned money to visit a land blighted by excessive wind turbine development.
Stop the reckless siting of wind turbines in Scotland’s scenic landscapes
