Colin Posted June 21, 2015 Report Share Posted June 21, 2015 The wind is free and unlike oil,gas,fish ect is unlikly to run out so it makes sense to me that this energy source should be captured and converted into something that we can use to power & heat our homes / offices thus, preserving oil and gas for the generations that come after us. Nothing against windfarms per se neither for/against them but, it is unlikely that any of the output will be used to power OUR homes and, it's pretty naive to think that preservation of oil and gas for future generations is an issue for the developers. Profit is the only issue they seek (and that appliest to the SIC/SCT as well). I also find it hard to imagine how any revenue generated(sic) from the venture will be used to benefit the local population directly.Sure, we will have incredibly useful(?) things like liesure centres/arts/music venues etc. but, what of the "ordinary joe" who couldn't give a damn about them.I would wonder(not) if there might be a way to re-instate the persioners christmas bonus or, finance public toilets/bus waiting rooms etc.. I mean, we have been promised "bucketloads" of income.. Is it all going to be wasted on "airy-fairy, arty/farty" rubbish that has to import "skilled" personel in order to operate?
