UK - The BBC's great wind scam

The Telegraph reports.

Scroll down to this.

"Another tireless promoter of the wind scam is Sarah Mukherjee, the BBC's environmental correspondent, who recently reported on the Government's energy White Paper standing in front of the 36-turbine Gallow Rig windfarm in Dumfriesshire, which she excitably claimed produces "enough power for around 18,000 homes".

In fact, thanks to the Renewable Energy Foundation's website, we can now see exactly how much (or how little) energy is produced by every turbine in the land. This shows that claims such as this exaggerated Gallow Rig's output by about 400 per cent.

Because this sort of telltale error is so persistent in the BBC's coverage of wind power, perhaps it is time for the corporation to tell us exactly what it is up to."

Oh, I think we know the answer to that.
