The invitation was to take part in a discussion hosted today, Tuesday (08/05/2012) at 12 o clock in our studio.
The host will introduce the topic to a guest panel (tbc but we've finalised Adam Bell from renewable uk and are in contact with English heritage, national trust royal society and other related organisations) representing differing views on the subject which will be windfarms based on the following and leading into a broader debate about the sustainability of windfarms:
'Researchers working in Texas have found that wind farms can affect local conditions by raising night-time temperatures on the ground. It is believed that the turbines bring relatively warm air down to ground level. The results were published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
Liming Zhou, Research Associate Professor at the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the University of New York, who led the study, said: "Wind energy is among the world's fastest growing sources of energy. The US wind industry has experienced a remarkably rapid expansion of capacity in recent years.
