The first simultaneous nationwide opening of wind farms takes place this weekend across the UK.
Its part of the Embrace the Revolution Campaign, set up last year to tackle the myths put about by opponents of wind energy, and give a voice to people who support wind energy, three-quarters of the UK population.
This August Bank Holiday (27-29 August), families across the UK will be able to visit a working wind farm and touch a turbine as part of the first ever, simultaneous nationwide opening of wind farms and for FREE (except the curmudgeons at The Centre for Alternative Energy in Wales, who are attempting to charge).
From Orkney to Aberystwyth, Cumbria to Great Yarmouth, windy activities on offer will include kite flying, windmill painting and the opportunity learn how renewable energy is tackling climate change – the greatest threat facing our planet. Go to www.embracewind.com for all the adresses and details.
Embrace the Revolution has the support of Sian Lloyd, weather presenter, who says: Climate change is a reality and we must act now if we are to stop the damage we are doing to our fragile planet. Wind is the best of the new renewable energy sources available right now.
