Wind power in Scotland - environment - From The New Scientist motivated arguably by "The Scots Independent Spirit and Renewable Energy Ambitions"

"Scotland is arguably one of the greenest countries in Europe.(notice the nuance) It produces 40 per cent of Scottish electricity demand from renewable sources, and models suggest this could rise to 67 per cent by 2018. That's closing in on the government's goal of producing enough green power to supply the equivalent of all of Scottish demand by 2020.

According to the well known adage "A  picture is worth a thousand words" allow me to bring to your attention the highly significant information on  Wind Energy Installations and projects in Scotland here.

PS.
I have taken a little of the sting from the article source in New Scientist since Scotland has, I am glad to say, opted to remain in the UK, at least as long as UK votes to stay in Europe. Leaving the current balance of payments in UK's favour it is ironical that "Southern-UK" cannot see its true role as a "Strong voice, critic if you will, and positive adviser" ever in Europe. and remain true to tradition as an island  that helped enormously to keep Nazism and Fascism off its shores and kick extremism out of the EU. The experience of UK and Commonwealth could provide one model for the current troubled world of refugees seeking shelter "AT ALL COSTS". So come on lads play it fair.  And what a performance from Scotland's Windy renewable energy programme.
