A Scottish Government spokesman said: ‘VisitScotland’s own research backs up previous studies – the majority of tourists are not deterred by wind turbines. In fact, evidence shows that wind turbines can attract tourists.’

Please ignore previous post re GWPF - I think it was just my inner technonumpty!

I'm getting a blank page for the GWPF. Anyone know what's up?

I'm quite pleased to see Peter Rippon (editor of Newsnight) getting it in the neck. I remember his belated and weaselly response here (comment 33):

Splicing Obama

I see the Bishop himself contributed at comment 46. I wonder if he ever got a reply?

Monckton continues to provide a dramatic contrast to Gore on Gibraltar:

http://www.chronicle.gi/headlines_details.php?id=26411 (20 October)
Extract: 'The GSD representative also asked Dr Cortes whether he did not think it “peculiar” that Mr Gore would not be giving a press conference in Gibraltar, to which the Minister retorted in the negative, adding that he would be able to ask him the question directly at the dinner on Sunday....Dr Cortes said that Mr Gore “will not be specifically hosting a press conference during this visit, as has already been stated. This is his usual practice.”

http://www.chronicle.gi/headlines_details.php?id=26413 (22 October)
Extract: 'During a press conference at the Eliott Hotel where he spoke for over an hour without a single note, he reiterated his scathing criticisms of Al Gore and repeated his challenge first delivered in 2007, for a public debate in any format of his choosing, on live international television with the controversial environmental guru.'

Self taught physicist who invented nickel-metal hydride batteries and glass transistors has died. All this with no formal education. The fact that self-taught people can come up with solutions and inventions that so called experts can't/don't shouldn't surprise anyone here.

Good to see the Mail using a decent photo of Judith Curry for a change.
