Major environmental groups seriously compromised by wind developers’ cash: http://www.cawt.co.uk/index.php?mact=CGBlog,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=741&cntnt01returnid=19

“One of the most genuinely shocking developments in the disputed push for wind generated energy emerged today with revelations in the Daily Mail that three major Scottish environmental and wildlife organisations have admitted accepting money from top wind farm developers. The three that have been outed and have put their hands up to the accusation – they call their relationships with the wind energy developers ‘partnerships’ – are:

  • World Wildlife Fund Scotland – supported by Scottish and Southern Energy
  • Friends of the Earth Scotland – supported by Scottish Power Renewables
  • Royal Society for the Protection of Birds Scotland – supported by various unnamed wind farm developers

This undermines even further the ability of straightforward folk to tease out what is reliable and what is not in the overheated conflict on whether or not Scotland should be going as bald-headedly as it is for wind energy.”

Well what a surprise!
