wind farm scam

I hope that the developers of commercial windfarms (and anyone else who believes that they are actually of practical use) reads the excellent book by Dr John Etherington titled "The Wind Farm Scam". Before retiring in 1990 Dr Etherington was a Reader in Ecology at the University of Wales and since then has devoted his time to researching (on a world-wide basis) the effectiveness (or in reality the ineffectiveness) of windfarms. Of necessity the book if of a technical nature with data drawn from many countries. However, it also looks at the environmental impact, the death-rate of birds, the effect on tourism and many other relevant factors. At slightly under £10 the book is well worth reading if only to make sure that you fully understand why it is that we are all (except for the developers who will make a considerable amount of money) being "taken for a ride".
