Turning Tidal

Given the massive newspaper and corporate campaign to make wind power more unpopular (which isn’t working), it’s worth also looking at what else fills the renewable energy portfolio.

I’m starting to think that if people don’t want a wind farm to spoil their view, and neither do they want a nuclear or coal power station in their back garden either, then those houses should not be allowed to have electricity. But that’s the snarky old man in me speaking.

The fake oil advertising campaign exposed by activists

More here. Fascinating how the public overwhelmingly support investment in renewable energy over fossil fuels, despite a huge media campaign globally against wind and solar power (and despite papers choosing not to run their own polls because the public won’t say what they want them to say). So much of this kind of thing goes on behind the scenes; it’s just another example of how polluting industries seek to influence public opinion.
