The great wind turbine debate
Last week, North Harris Trust was invited to take part in a debate on wind power. The S2 year-group were covering wind power in their Geography course work. They wanted to hear the arguments for and against this form of renewable energy. Having had some experience with wind projects, the Energy Development Officer was the obvious choice to talk in favour of wind power. Talking against wind-power was a difficult one. In the end, the Land Manager, who likes a good argument, volunteered. After hours on the internet, he pulled together a presentation with plenty of exploding turbines, to scare the pupils.
Following both sides of the debate, the floor opened for questions. Judging by the difficulty of the questions, the pupils took note of what we hope was a balanced argument. Now they can make their own minds up!
