Today’s talking point


The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds yields to no one in its support of all things green, including wind turbines. Hitherto it has insisted that if ‘correctly’ sited the turbines, more than 800ft high and with blade speeds up to 200mph, constitute no danger to birds, despite much evidence to the contrary. However the RSPB has been forced to come off the fence with government approval for a giant wind farm off the Yorkshire coast. It opposes the scheme and admits it will kill seabirds which are already in decline. Is this a hint that the green lobby is seeing sense?
