We are facing an existential threat from global warming exacerbated by continuing use of fossil fuels.
I have championed the use of wind energy all along, and the energy crisis has forced to government to consider all the alternatives, and support for onshore wind has been growing even within the Conservative party.
We must move to green technologies. The earth stands on the brink of collapse, and we must move to wind energy in all its forms.
Onshore wind has my full support, and I will be voting for any legislation that brings this about. At the same time, we must make sure that that the placement of wind farms is properly and fairly decided, and I will support regulation that achieves that.
