If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.

Ten years too late, it’s good riddance to wind farms – one of the most dangerous delusions of our age

Christopher Booker UK

"I have been following this (wind turbine) extraordinary story for ten years ever since, in 2002, I first began looking carefully at what really lay behind this deceptive obsession with the charms of wind power. It didn’t take me long, talking to experts and reading up on the technical facts, to see that the fashionable enthusiasm for wind energy was based on a colossal illusion. I first warned about what I called ‘the greatest mistake in our history’ in an article in the Mail almost ten years ago.
I described the claim that it would be the answer to all our future energy problems as a catastrophic failure of judgment. I feared that windpower was stupendously inefficient and ludicrously expensive and that by falling for the greatest energy hoax of our time, the Labour government could be consigning Britain to a very dark future. So unreliable are wind turbines — thanks to the wind’s constant vagaries — that they are one of the most inefficient means of producing electricity ever devised."


"The erection of a wind turbine creates apprehension in the general public, which makes the property less desirable and thus diminishes the prices of neighbouring property...” “Continuing scientific uncertainty over the adverse health consequences of wind turbines only serves to perpetuate the debilitating effect of wind turbines on property prices.”
Ben Lansink, Appraiser

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
