Yoof is Green
Following news that councils are rejecting two thirds of wind farms applications, independent research has highlighted a huge divide in opinions between old and young on the developments - with concerns over spoiled views so far winning over planning committees rather than protecting the environment for future generations. Spoilt views and increases in noise were the main concerns of those who said they oppose wind farms.
...Nobody under the age of 24 said they would oppose a wind farm in their area.
John Quinton-Barber from IPB Communications said: "Younger people are clearly in favour of building wind farms for green energy - but they are not getting their message across.
"It is these generations, and their children, who are going to have to live with the long-term consequences of climate changes, so it is vital they stand up and have their say now.
"At the moment the statistics don't add up. The opinions of older people seem to be taking priority when it comes to decision making. The silent majority need to find their voice and take their views to councillors when it comes to renewable energy."
Those bastard old people, what do they know about the world compared to the kidz?
Green doesn't mean inexperienced for nuffink does it?
