Paris, Saturday Oct. 4th 2008
In Paris today, on the occasion of the international demonstration against wind farms, German, Belgian, Spanish and French federations and associations have founded the European Platform Against Windfarms (EPAW).
This project has received the support of colleagues from 16 countries representing several hundred federations and associations.
The founding members of this platform have agreed to make the following declaration :
to the fight against global warming. This is principally due to the intermittent and uncontrollable nature of wind, which makes it necessary to rely on the back-up of polluting fossil-fuels power stations, 24 hours a day.
Industrial windpower is subsidized by the taxpayer-consumer.
In France for example, if the national plan is realized ( 12,500 wind turbines ! ) this burden will amount to 2.5 billion euros annually. In Germany, it is already costing 4 billion euros a year.
2) The demands made by EPAW : an immediate moratorium and more transparency.
