You seem to forget (although Chris Townsend did remind you a few times) that wind energy protesters are totally self funded; from individuals. They get no government grants. Getting incredibly expensive professional advice is very difficult - hence lawyers working for them for just expenses.
On the other hand, the developers have incredibly deep pockets, and as you have been shown, can actually manage to claw back ALL their expenses after they win a planning application.
You seem to ignore the fact that the average man in the street - even the average hill walker, is unaware of many of the arguments against onshore wind.
When these "FACTS" (I know you like capital letters... but not it seems at the start of sentences) are shown to them they quickly realise that wind power is not "green" or good for the wild land. So - it is very important to get these "FACTS" ( I am beginning to enjoy this shouting lark) out there so that people can make an informed judgement.
Garnering support from newly informed folk is vital to increase public awareness of the problem. The more people who are unhappy with the status quo, the more chance there is of getting more opposition to wind farms. That's why I continue to write about the issues on the blog.
You love challenging people's approach to this subject rather than what they stand for. This seems a very destructive approach. And my question to you about what you have actually done is not "witless" at all. It is entirely relevant. The only person here showing any sign of having no wits at all is you, dear thing.
So: Here's the million dollar question:
What *do* you stand for? And here's another, repeated from before: What are you doing to stop the spread of turbines on wild land?
Answer the questions. I shan't hold my breath waiting for your reply.
I have just read right through the discussion of January 2010 on here about Beauly to Denny powerline. I see that "ParkyAgain" attacked Chris Townsend, the MCofS, The John Muir Trust and the rest of the Action Group over the way they handled the enquiry.
Chris, and others, pointed out to him that this was the green light for massive development of wind power in the Highlands, yet he ignored this and chose instead to try to rubbish the very people who were trying to stop the industrialisation of the Highlands.
Dear God, Parky! Why don't you pick fights with the people who deserve a fight? I am amazed no-one has punched your lights out years ago on here.
