(Queen’s Park) —The Quebec government has passed legislation that bans wind turbines from being built within two kilometres of homes and within one kilometre of public roads.
The Quebec government has also protected agricultural fields, cultivated floodplains, and woodlands, as well as bike lanes from the presence of wind turbines. It also establishes the one kilometre distance between the turbines and environmentally protected areas, much like Lisa Thompson, MPP’s (Huron-Bruce) bill, the Ensuring Affordable Energy Act, which protects the Niagara Escarpment and Oak… Read more

FEATURE ARTICLE, WEEKENDAVISEN
Feature Article. The Danish Parliament favours the wind industry to a degree where the constitutional state is weakened. Ida Auken, Minister for the Environment, is so indifferent to facts that in a consultation she delivers 38 wrong answers, including the information that wind turbine noise does not disturb more than noise from any other source, and that the regulations are stricter for wind turbine noise than for any other noise.

BACK IN 2004, there were 12 operational wind farms in the UK and average annual energy bills were £522. Today, 355 operational wind farms dot our countryside and we pay around £1,252 for energy each year. As wind farms have multiplied, energy bills have more than doubled.
Over 5.5 million UK households spend more than 10% of their income on fuel; they are ‘fuel poor’. In Scotland, under the rule of a wind-obsessed Government, over 900,000 households – more than thirty-three per cent – cannot afford to heat their homes adequately. For every 5% increase… Read more
