Leaving aside your dislike for Godfrey Bloom what do you think about the windfarm industry?. Do you think it is all above board or not?. Do you dismiss information if someone you dislike is involved?.Any scientist. Anyone actually working with wind power who does not have an interest in preventing the development of alternate power sources.
More about at The Times.The fake UKIP party, still reeling from the revelation that its leader Nigel Farage has swindled claimed more than £2 million in expenses, has been shaken once again by the news that another of its MEPs uses his Euro parliamentary staff allowance to pay three assistants who are also employed at an investment company in which he is a major shareholder.
He is also a climate change denier.The Financial Services Authority (FSA) has fined TBO Investments Limited (TBO) £28,000 for failing to clearly document the explanation of the risks of transactions to clients. It also failed to make and retain records that demonstrate the suitability of its advice and ensure that its business is conducted in accordance with FSA requirements.
Another 'Zeitgeist' against wind power, GiG?
So far to the claim in the film "there is no scientific evidence that wind tubines save CO2 emissions".Washington, DC, United States - 01 September 2010 - Recent data and analyses have made it clear that the emissions savings from adding wind energy to the grid are even larger than had been commonly thought. In addition to each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of wind energy directly offsetting a kWh that would have been produced by a fossil-fired power plant, new analyses show that wind plants further reduce emissions by forcing the most polluting and inflexible power plants offline and causing them to be replaced by more efficient and flexible types of generation.
Doesn't sound they were that much against wind at that time.The ethical option
There was a time when ethical investment was thought of as, at best, a minority interest for sandal-wearers and, at worst, a contradiction in terms. Those days have long since passed. Ethical investment is now part of the investment mainstream, thanks to government pressure, growing awareness of environmental issues and demand from institutional and private investors
On the way to its current status, ethical investment has undergone something of a name change, so that it is now often referred to as ocially responsible investment (SRI).
Research undertaken by Ethical Investment Research Service (EIRIS) puts the size of private investor SRI funds at over £5.5bn at the end of 2004, a nearly sevenfold growth over the previous 10 years. If you want to join the growing numbers of ethical investors, you now have a wide choice:
Unit trusts and Open-Ended Investment Companies (OIECs)
Most of the major investment management groups offer at least one SRI fund and the Investment Management Association lists over 40 ethical funds. The majority of these funds are concentrated in the UK, but some have an overseas bias. Their diversity means there is no specific ethical fund sector, but there is a 20-member ethical subset of the largest single fund sector, UK All Companies. SRI funds are all eligible for investment through ISAs and PEPs, although some have a high minimum investment level, which makes them suitable only for plan transfers.
Life assurance funds
You can invest in SRI funds through investment bonds and other life assurance policies. Many of the life funds are 100% invested in the ethical unit trust or OEIC that shares the same name.
As with life funds, many pension plans offer an ethical investment option through funds which invest in ethical unit trusts or OEICs.
Just as no two individuals ethics are the same, so the ethical stances of funds vary. If there is a particular investment area that you want to avoid such as animal research make sure you take advice before investing.
Just because they are ethical or responsible does not necessarily make these funds any less risky. The value of these investments can fluctuate and it is possible you might not get back a significant proportion of your investment. Past performance is not an indication of future performance and may not be repeated.
You can very well compare cost / benefit of the different systems. There are tons of studies in the web. One only needs to read and understand them.This is hardly a surprise as this stage. Everyone and their grandmother knows that the only efficient renewable energy source is Hydropower. However, the enviromentalists won't contemplate allowing dams to be built on our waterways. It's either that, nuclear power or fossil fuel stations.
Live with it greenies. The world won't regress to suit you.
Another 'Zeitgeist' against wind power, GiG?
I caught you with your calculation in another thread where I can confidently say that you are false by a factor of more than 100.
Do you know how many real sad movies there are about nuclear energy which you're favouring?
Edit: GiG wanted to tell us that wind tubines in Ireland would produce three times more CO2 than they would save by not burning fossil fuels.
He is calling it "science, data, arithmetic". Probably the same science, data and arithmetic on which Godfrey Bloom's film clip is based on.
GiG has been ignoring me pointing out that his numbers are wrong. No wonder that real scientists are coming to a different conclusion.
An article citing several studies (incl.sources) tells us that wind has a greater impact on CO2 savings than previously thought.

So far to the claim in the film "there is no scientific evidence that wind tubines save CO2 emissions".
That's just untrue.
I'm not sure what you mean by the the windfarm 'industry'. I have met people with permission for a couple of windmills on their rural farm, there are major landowners, Airtricity and other major suppliers, manufacturers of turbines, and many others that could call themselves part of the windfarm 'industry'. I don't see that they operate as a monolith, or even always have common interests. I'm sure that they are mostly humans, and will operate in their own perceived interests, as most people do.Ok... So what do you think about the windfarm industry?.
you do realise this source comes from the BNP facebook page?Many claims in that film clip are simply false. It does hardly cite any sources for its allegations. Who are those people?
