Donald Trump Looses UK Lawsuit Against Offshore Wind

Climate denier Donald Trump (who said he wouldn’t bother attending the Paris Climate Summit) may be leading in Republican polls, but he’s not doing so well across the Atlantic Ocean.

Since 2013, he’s been trying to block an offshore wind farm in Scotland – because he doesn’t like the view from his new golf course and resort located there.

After multiple appeals, he failed to block the wind farm in Scotland courts so he took it to the UK Supreme Court … and now, they too (unanimously) rejected his argument. 

The 100 megawatt offshore wind farm will now go forward placing 11 wind turbines two miles off the coast, and powering 86,000 homes – half the population of Aberdeen.

Also planned is the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre, an offshore wind-testing center where developers can test technologies before deploying them, cutting capital costs and risks. It would establish Scotland as a hub for offshore development in Europe.

"History will judge those involved unfavorably and the outcome demonstrates the foolish, small-minded and parochial mentality which dominates the current Scottish government’s dangerous experiment with wind energy," says the Trump Organization in a statement. Trump "will evaluate the court’s decision and continue to fight this proposal on every possible front."

The golf course should never have been built in the first place – it destroyed Scotland’s ancient dunes and wildlife habitat, while permanently disrupting the lives of the people who live there. Trump strong-armed the government and local communities to get it through as described in the compelling documentary, You’ve Been Trumped.

This would be the view:

Scotland offshore wind

He also fiercely fought an offshore wind farm off the coast of Ireland, which ended up being cancelled because of endangered species concerns.

And he’s really up in arms because two massive offshore wind farms are also planned for the area, powering over 1 million homes, and helping the country meet its goal for 100% renewable electriciity by 2020. 

Trump says, "We will spend whatever monies are necessary to see to it that these huge and unsightly industrial wind turbines are never constructed."

 

Trump is a member of the "climate change is a hoax" camp, often pointing out that there’s cold weather and snow.
