Renewable Rage

“There was no direct evidence that exposure to wind farms affects someone‚Äôs physical or mental health directly. … There was evidence that people were more likely to be annoyed, particularly annoyed about wind farms, when they were close to them, and we do know that being annoyed, long periods of being annoyed, can lead to stress, and we know stress can lead to …” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/feb/11/wind-farm-study-finds-no-direct-evidence-they-affect-health)

… gabbling.

Target

If the Australian renewable energy target is cut, “it’s the type of jolt to industry that basically would create such an upheaval that you would have a mass exodus.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/02/09/us-australia-windfarms-idUKKBN0LC00C20150209)

Perhaps the target fixers need an electrical jolt up the mass exodus.

Vocals

“Major future wind and solar farms should give communities the chance to invest and own as much as a quarter of projects … to cement goodwill with existing supporters of wind power but to win over vocal opponents as well.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/nov/03/people-living-near-windfarms-offered-stakes-from-5-pounds-counter-opposition)

Such local residents could ensure a steady supply of wind.

Mock Turbine

“European Commission is asking the United Kingdom to designate protected areas for harbour porpoise, a marine mammal regularly found in UK waters. … Despite a large number of harbour porpoise in its waters, the UK has so far proposed only one small site in Northern Ireland, exposing some of the identified sites to the risk of offshore wind farm development. … The European Commission is [also] urging the UK to comply with EU requirements on industrial emissions. … The infringement concerns coal-fired Aberthaw power station in Wales, which is exceeding the emission limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx). … [This gives] the UK two months to act … [or] the case may be referred to the EU Court of Justice.” (http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_MEMO-14-589_en.htm)

A DEFRA spokesperson could only gabble*:
“Will you blow a little faster?” said a wind farm to a whale,
“There’s a porpoise posse near us, venting noxides over Wales.”

Forestry

The proposed site of a large-scale wind farm “is completely encircled by globally important peatland habitats, protected under European and Scots law. The area proposed for development would have been given similar protection were it not for inappropriate planting with conifers in the 1980s.” (http://www.rspb.org.uk/media/releases/353694-rspb-scotland-set-to-object-to-a-damaging-wind-farm-proposal-threatening-the-flow-country)

Some wag arranged the trees in blatantly pornographic poses and from a nearby hill their placement clearly spells ‘arse’.
