The letter from Paul Nuttal on subsidies for wind energy painted a very misleading picture. Figures from the OECD show that for every pound the UK spends subsidising renewable energy, over £10 is spent on tax breaks for oil and gas production.
Of course, Mr Nuttal never mentioned this. Instead he wants to perpetuate this lunacy by embracing shale gas despite the devastation this has caused in the USA. How strange that he seems offended by wind turbines but would happily see Wirral peppered by gas rigs.
To protect our own environment and preserve it for future generations we must embrace renewable energy and reject the increasingly desperate search for dirty fossil fuels.
