Fact: Wind turbines are deadly to birds and bats as well as needing huge subsidies
We've teamed up with green energy company Ecotricity and submitted a planning application for a wind turbine to be erected at our headquarters in Bedfordshire.If the plans are approved then the wind turbine will be erected at The Lodge nature reserve near Sandy, at the earliest, in autumn 2014 and will measure 100m at its highest point. The turbine is predicted to produce the equivalent of two thirds of the RSPB’s total UK electricity needs.
Paul Forecast, Director of the RSPB in the East, said: “A wind turbine at our UK headquarters is the single biggest step we can take to reduce our carbon emissions, and will make a significant contribution to the RSPB’s carbon reduction targets.
Is there a clearer case of moral bankruptcy?
