Campaign to keep Scotland Bonny

This message is from Wind Wise Radio who started the petition “First Minister Alex Salmond: Stop the reckless siting of wind turbines in Scotland’s scenic landscapes.”

For information, the petition has just passed 600 signatures, and we would appreciate your help to quickly DOUBLE that number.

Please take a minute to send details of this petition to just one of your friends who you believe will support this cause. Ask them to please sign the petition. (Has your significant other signed?)

Remember: Scotland’s natural beauty is under siege and may be irrevocably destroyed in the next 18 months. Soon there may not be a hilltop in Scotland without a view of turbines.

Local planners across Scotland are being overwhelmed by get-rich-quick wind prospectors submitting permit applications. An average of 6 applications every day! Figures obtained by the Scottish Tories under the Freedom of Information Act show 5,528 applications have been made since May 2007, seven times more than under the previous Labour-led administration. One local authority, Aberdeenshire, has received more than 1,000 planning applications over this period, while a series of other rural councils have experienced a 14-fold increase since the SNP came to power. Over 80% of large projects are being approved, even if local communities are opposed. Just two days ago, a major hurdle to turbines on the hills above Loch Ness was overcome when the planning board refused to object (without even visiting the site).
