A wind turbine at the Ardrossan Windfarm in Ayrshire, Scotland bursts into flames due to high winds and severe weather.
The 30 megawatt windfarm has a total of fifteen Danish manufactured turbines which each stand 100m (328ft) high. Rather ironically today, one of the wind turbines, which are obviously made to harness the natural power of the wind, couldn’t cope and burst into flames.
Wind power isn’t necessarily the wonderful gift that Chris Huhne and the government would like us to believe. They are now proposing to build another 32,000 wind turbines in addition to the existing c.3,000 turbines. Are these going to be build near houses? The video below also highlights the dangers of wind turbines in high winds.
