‘Soviet-style’ wind farm subsidies to face the axe

Grossbritannien hat endlich einen vernünftigen Umweltminister: “Soviet-style” green subsidies for wind farms must be scrapped because turbines are blighting local communities, the new Environment Secretary said on Tuesday. Owen Paterson, who took on the role last month, said wind developers should “stand on their own two feet” instead of asking for money from the state. He said green technologies such as wind farms might actually have a worse impact than climate change, because they are causing “public insurrection”.
