UK / USA / ENERGY : 27 Mar UPDATE: American Resort Developer Trump Opposes Aberdeen Wind Farm.


     Multi-millionaire USA developer Donald Trump...famous as a publicity-seeking windbag, hyperactive Tweeter and minor TV personality...is opposing a wind farm off Aberdeen in Scotland...because it will spoil views from his new $1.1 billion golf course/resort.
     Trump has even compared the wind farm's construction to the release of the convicted Lockerbie plane bomber. 

      The Scottish government has approved the 11 turbine...$390 million project.
      The project could provide 100 MW...enough energy for 49,000 homes...or about half of Aberdeen.
      'We will put our future plans in Aberdeen on hold, as will many others, until this ridiculous proposal in defeated,' Trump said.
