Stop this irrational wind-farm policy

THE headline 'Cabinet at war over demands by Greens -- Walkout averted after "outrageous" content of Climate Change Bill' ('Sunday Independent', January 2) suggests that, finally, Fianna Fail is beginning to realise that its energy policy as manifested in the bill is to satisfy an ideology rather than the needs of the nation.
This policy is wasteful and will jeopardise the necessary revival of our manufacturing industry.
I hope that our opposition parties vote down this bill. We have a surplus of electricity plants after the addition of the new, efficient gas-fired plants.
