A Bad Case Of Wind In Denmark

Saw this story on the Sunday Telegraph website. Once again it gives Little Nicky Machiavelli a chance to say “I told you so.”

Ill Wind For Denmark’s Green Revolution

Denmark has long been a role model for green activists, but now it has become one of the first countries to turn against the turbines.

To green campaigners, it is windfarm heaven, generating a claimed fifth of its power from wind and praised by British ministers as the model to follow. But amid a growing public backlash, Denmark, the world’s most windfarm-intensive country, is turning against the turbines.

Last month, unnoticed in the UK, Denmark’s giant state-owned power company, Dong Energy, announced that it would abandon future onshore wind farms in the country. “Every time we were building onshore, the public reacts in a negative way and we had a lot of criticism from … more >>>
