ABSTRACT
The article focuses on various aspects related to environmental policy in Scotland. Global Warming is a bogeyman aimed at frightening people into accepting the government line and acquiescing to the predations of the wind industry. Every day more outlandish claims are cited as undisputed facts challenged only by heretics. The call is for simple, if controversial, solutions that, happily, coincide with the material interests of those who make it. Wind power does so little to cut CO2 emissions. The irony is that the hysteria has achieved the very thing that will probably destroy those who made it a pillar of environmental orthodoxy. The rush for wind on the scale envisaged for Great Britain, especially Scotland, is leading one inexorably into an engineering and environmental disaster. It is driven by industrialists, politicians and, shockingly, environmentalists who share an almost reckless lack of concern for the social, commercial or ecological consequences of their actions. Each seems more eager than the next to erect these ineffectual but intimidating totems to an ideology.
