Friends of the Earth Scotland is poised to step up its campaign to accelerate the country's switch to renewable energy sources. The campaign has been given a welcome boost following a MORI survey which found that nine out of 10 tourists visiting Scotland's top beauty spots said the presence of wind farms did not put them off. The survey, which involved more than 300 visitors, was commissioned by the British Wind Energy Association and the Scottish Renewables Forum. Friends of the Earth Scotland said the survey dispels the myth that wind farms deter tourism and that the Scottish Assembly should adopt tougher targets for renewable energy. It is to lobby Scottish MPs to embrace a 40 per cent target for renewables by 2020. Targets now stand at 10 per cent.
