"I find it frustrating, as a lay person, to find answers to technical questions. You see gigantic wind turbines appearing all over the country, but there is very little about the practical value of these monstrosities.....When will common sense and good science prevail and what happens if it does not fairly soon?"
Letter from HRH Prince Philip to Professor Plimer, 29th April 2018.
This book attempts to answer the questions raised by the late Duke of Edinburgh.
