Thousands of Scots will be with Mrs Weir in spirit today as she attempts to talk some sense into First Minister Alex Salmond over his madcap windmill building scheme.
Rhona Weir is the widow of Tom Weir who entertained millions of Scots with stv's 'Weir's Way'. It brought the great outdoors to the bleak housing schemes of Scotland and got us wanting to go out and explore our beautiful countryside.
I had a look through some of Tom's old programmes on youtube and his views seem to chime with mine on the climate. In this video from Glen Affric Tom talks about how the great Caledonian forests thrived in a warmer period as can be seen by studying the peat bogs. The colder years had a great impact on the forests and stunted their growth. All of this happened long before man came along and invented the global warming myth......
I wonder how Tom would feel were he alive today if he saw his beautiful country covered in these uselss industrial turbines.
If I had a chance to speak to the First Minister then I would ask him a few basic questions...
1.Do you know that the met office has said that there's been no 'global warming' for nearly 20 years despite a massive increase in the supposed culprit CO2 ?
2.Do you know that windmills need 100% back up from fossil fuelled power stations and cause an increase in CO2 ?
3.Do you know that all the figures given by windmill companies are inaccurate and that they only provide 30% at best of the claimed output with some windfarms such as Whitelees near Eaglesham managing just 21.9 % ?
4.Do you know that the only people who gain from windmill building are the builders/operators and the people who rent land to the builders with the rest of us paying for them via increased fuel costs ?
5.Do you know that for every supposed 'green job' that 3 real jobs are lost as the money is wasted on windmills ?
I suspect that Mrs Weir will be charmed by the First Minister but that the ideology is too ingrained in the SNP to make them change tack from their madcap 'renewable revolution' rubbish.
