Scottish Renewables Respons to Trump’s Anti-wind Letters (UK)


In response to a letter sent by Donald Trump to the First Minister regarding offshore wind, Niall Stuart, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said:

 “Who is Donald Trump to tell Scotland what is good for our economy and our environment?

 “Offshore wind is already attracting billions of pounds of investment and supporting hundreds of jobs across Scotland, including in his mother’s hometown of Stornoway.

 “He completely overblows the impact of the proposed wind farm and to be honest there are so many mistakes in the ‘trumped-up’ nonsense that it’s difficult to know where to begin. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that these two developments cannot exist side by side.”
