Website Aims to Counter Anti-Wind Sentiments

August 25, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] United Kingdom’s Green groups have launched a website that calls on people to join the campaign to increase the amount of energy supplied by wind power in the UK. Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and the World Wildlife Fund, UK (WWF-UK) are so determined to counter internet propaganda which has spread scare stories about planned wind farm developments that they have joined forces to launch http://www.yes2wind.com. The green groups are keen to promote the new site in rural areas where a vocal minority has been opposing the development of clean, green energy generation. Opinion polls show the vast majority of people support the building of wind farms, but anti-wind websites and leaflets have responded with biased and unreliable information, said the organizations.
