To: David Cameron MP, UK Prime Minister
Stop the Government blocking UK wind farms
Stop blocking onshore wind energy projects, which have previously received planning approval from local councils or the planning inspectorate.
Why is this important?
The UK wind industry now employs nearly 20,000 people and frequently exports more power to the grid than gas power stations. Costs are coming down, employment is going up and wind is reducing our consumption of fossil fuels.
The Government's own public attitude surveys show that wind has high levels of public support, significantly above that for fossil fuel generation, fracking and nuclear.
We in the UK have recently seen significant climate change induced weather events, toxic levels of air pollution and we now also face threats to our gas supply due to the Ukraine crisis. Now is not the time for the Government to be putting the brakes on the most cost effective form of 'green' generation, particularly in the light of the latest IPPC reports highlighting the huge threat posed to us all by climate change. We need much more renewable generation now for the sake of future generations, as any climatologist will tell you!
