They suggest installing an equivalent generating capacity of 8,000MW of other renewables instead. It's interesting that the 650MW onshore windfarm on Lewis was turned down under intense lobbying by some of these same NGOs.
Having parried objections to onshore wind sites from NGOs, I will have more faith in their objectivity when I see them welcoming renewables instead of opposing them.
In the meantime, let's get that barrier built because climate change and fossil fuel depletion won't stop for political debates.
