From the Highlands to the Lowlands, from Argyll and Bute to Fife, Scotland is covered with awe-inspiring scenery – scenery enjoyed by both tourists and residents alike. Unfortunately, initiatives undertaken by First Minister Alex Salmond and the Scottish National Party (SNP) to reach the 50 percent renewable energy goal set by the Minister at the RenewableUK conference in Glasgow are endangering Scotland’s land and wildlife.
In the face of 10,000 objections filed with the Scottish government, the SNP and First Minister Alex Salmond, setting their eyes on the goal, have turned a blind eye to the people. In order to meet these lofty renewable energy goals, the Scottish government has dedicated itself to wind power despite the dangers and inefficiencies surrounding the industry.
See how Wind Turbines affect people in Vermont, USA:
Land is being blighted, animal habitats are being decimated, and people are getting hurt.
Well-known conservationist Aldo Leopold once wrote, “Examine each question in terms of what is ethically and aesthetically right, as well as what is economically expedient. A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.”
The Scotland Land & Wildlife Coalition (SLWC) maintains that Scotland’s commitment to building wind turbines is ethically, aesthetically, and economically questionable. The Coalition is dedicated to exposing the lies behind the wind industry. We, the members of SLWC, have taken it upon ourselves to preserve Scotland’s picturesque landscapes and precious wildlife, and we hope that you will join us in the fight.
