Sabotage to blame for Wind Turbine damage?

Just realised I never wrote about this here. Remember the tale of mystery surrounding some Wind Turbines getting damaged? The conspiracy theories all seemed to point to the least plausible reason: an extra terrestrial incident. I came up with my own idea about how this happened…

Bill Oddie. Yes, that bird watching bloke from the BBC who absolutely loathes wind turbines. It might not have been him directly, checking in his trademark binoculars for passing coppers, before swing a hammer or two at the blades, but it does stand to reason that he might try and so something like this. After all, everyone wants in on this Direct Action malarkey!

I mean this slightly in jest, and have no actual evidence to back it up, but the likelihood is, its either weather, birds or someone who doesn’t like wind turbines. The fact is, though, that anti-turbine sentiment is a bizarre thing; a few people have made a huge fuss about them, totally out of proportion to the rest of the public’s feelings. Yes, people do get concerned, but generally those concerns, whilst logically founded, are proven unnecessary over time.

But there’s always someone with an axe to grind, getting muchly over zealous about an issue. I just wish people didn’t decide it was a UFO strike before ruling out the more logical explanations!
