    He says with his funky "I'm not going to make my lines long because I don't want you to expend the 0.0000000000000000000000000000000001 watts of energy required to move your eye from right to left".

    I didn't ask for an article where a former environmentalist (qv. his wikipedia page) marches against a wind farm.

    David Bellamy was never an advocate of wind power. So this is not an example of some environmentalist (or group thereof) first lobbying for wind power and then against it, which is what jwenting claimed and what I'm saying has never happened in reality.

    Also, everything I found on the web about the guy indicates people on both sides consider him a quack. He apparently was president of a wild plant conservation charity for a long time until a few years ago when they asked him to resign because of public anti-environmental statements he was starting to make. He's now associated with neo-liberal thinktanks*, hence a former environmentalist.

    Finally, taking one dubious quack as representative of anything is only a demonstration of how you are lead around by your own prejudices, seeing only what you want to find.
