      It really, really is. I’ve been to Scotland twice and it is a beautiful place. How horrible to see those turbines blighting large swaths of the countryside. Please tell me they aren’t planning on putting them in places like Skye, Glencoe, Inverness or the Cairngorms…

    And yet we are told that an oil derrick would spoil the vast wastelands of the north slope, where virtually noone lives.

    The aristocrats cashing in on Britain’s wind farm subsidies

    They are among the nation’s wealthiest aristocrats, whose families have protected the British landscape for centuries. Until now that is.

    For increasing numbers of the nobility – among them dukes and even a cousin of the Queen – are being tempted by tens of millions of pounds offered by developers to build giant wind farms on their estates.

    An investigation by The Sunday Telegraph reveals how generous subsidies – that are added to consumer energy bills – are encouraging hereditary landowners to build turbines up to 410ft tall on their land.

    With controversy over onshore wind farms growing, the role of the landed establishment in fuelling the ‘scramble for wind’ will alarm opponents.

    They claim wind farms are blighting the countryside while failing to deliver a reliable supply of electricity despite the cost.

      In their drive to de-industrialize Britain even further, the Greens and their dye-colored brethren with Labour and the Tories return the wealth to where it originally was: from the citizens to the landowners.

    What a damn shame that picture is. Imagine what history had occurred on those fields and mountains.

    Back when men were men, and Scots were Scots …

    The real eyesore will be in 10-30 years when they are abandoned and there is no money to remove them (especially the off shore ones).
