UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Bullied Into a Catastrophic Wind U-Turn – A group funded in part by Extinction Rebellion hounded Sunak into overturning the ban

By Rupert Darwall Daily Mail

The fairy tale of cheap wind energy is falling apart.

Whether at sea or, even worse, on land, wind-powered electricity turbines are not simply inefficient and horrendously expensive — they threaten Britain’s entire energy programme.

Yet a blinkered group of Tory rebels, backed by a dodgy European consortium funded in part by extremists from the Extinction Rebellion anti-capitalist movement, has hounded Rishi Sunak into overturning the ban on new onshore wind farms.

In doing so, the Prime Minister has broken a key pledge he made to the Tory grassroots when he was running to be party leader.
