UK COLUMNIST ASKS: "WHY ARE GREENS SO KEEN TO DESTROY WORLD'S WILDLIFE?"

Posted 6 July 2015 

"Ever more evidence is piling in these days to show how one of the oddest anomalies of our time  is the astonishing extent to which the dream of 'renewable, carbon-free' energy is creating one environmental disaster after another.
