Comment posted on Major environmental groups seriously compromised by wind developers’ cash by Mike Haseler
I used to work for a company that erected mobile phones and the small masts that monitor wind before a wind industrial estate.
I was heavily pro-environment (I was even selected as a candidate by the green party in 2004?). However, I just couldn’t stomach the lies and deceit of wind.
I was desperate to start erecting mobile phones. I just wanted to work with people who were honest. No one says a mobile phone mast is there to protect the environment. No one lies about the jobs, no one lies about the “need” for phones … they don’t have to.
In contrast the people we normally turn to, to protect our landscape were actively trying to destroy it. Worse they were fraudulently portraying anyone else who tried to protect the landscape as “evil people in the pay of big oil”.
There was also the lies about jobs, the obvious one about climate change (1C not 6C is real science, the rest is voodoo augury).
And unlike mobile phones (which I dislike as well), windindustrial estates, litter the landscape not dot it. They destroy scenic beauty, put of tourists, … and the real clincher … is that it is the poor who pay hardest and it the rich “English upper class twats” I had to deal with who were making all the money from wind.
Then you have the lying media in Scotland. E.g. has anyone heard that Arctic ice is back to normal? Of course not! The BBC on climate is just one propaganda machine spreading any and every lie it can about the climate … and never telling the truth. Like it hasn’t warmed this century (they denied that … and many in the BBC still do), only a small fraction of the predicted warming is actually based on hard science.

- As for RS, just answer me this:
In the UK, according to Age Concern there are 23,000 extra deaths in the winter. If nothing changed (i.e. no warming) that would be 2.3million deaths over the next century.
Who are the real holocaust deniers?
Why have people like you consistently denied the deaths caused in the UK from cold? Like you denied the damage to tourism, the loss of jobs, the fact that your taxes disproportionately hit those 2.3million which can only increase it (unless it gets warmer).
In the 1690s during the last Maunder Minimum, it is estimated that a quarter of Scots died due to cold. Many scientists are concerned that the recent change in activity of the sun means we are about to enter a new Maunder Minimum.
Yet again, you will deny that we have anything to fear from a Maunder Minimum, yet you will then tell us Scots that the 2.3million deaths do not exist and that we are to fear warming in Scotland.
But it is the same worldwide. Those who actually monitor global weather rather than pick or choose the latest flood/drought snow/heatwave to attribute to global warming, know that climate extremes are not increasing.
In other words, there is almost no hint that the small rise in 20th century (not this century) has caused any harm at all.
Indeed, now that Arctic ice is back to normal, the only real sign of warming is the melting glaciers … and perhaps that might have something to do with the fact we were in the little iceage in the 19th century (just when the global temperature … very conveniently!! … starts)
- I am what you scandalously and libellously call “the forces of darkness” … I’m a sceptic, or as they used to call it “science” before all this consensus nonsense.
As someone who was very close to the inner workings of the renewables business, I can tell you that all the major oil companies have commercial interests in wind. Back when I was part of the BWEA, they were certainly the biggest industry grouping in wind.
I know many of the sceptics in Scotland. I certainly know the prominent ones. None of them either work for oil companies or receive oil money … how do I know … because none of them have any money. We pay for things out of our own pockets.
Personally, I have spent far too much of my own time and money trying to explain that all we sceptics want is good science.
