Renewables supported

Renewable energy is finding political support, apart from the nuclear de-generators in Downing Street.

It is good to see Alex Salmond portray a vision of Scotland being entirely free of nuclear and using renewables to build a carbon-neutral future, even if the specifics are somewhat vague.

The tone of the argument suggests that renewables – wave, wind, tidal and solar – could become a major (party) political issue at the next election, and my view is that this can only help public understanding of the debate.  I say, “Bring it on, and make it cerebral and not emotive”.

Is it possible to make the debate purely "cerebral and not emotive" when the land itself is involved, particularly in Lewis and the Highlands? I think not.

It would also be interesting to know what the SNP's prospective MSP candidate's views are on the current windfarm proposals.
