Greens expect Trump's wild opinions to be flattened

For immediate release 7 March 2012

Scottish Greens are confident Donald Trump's misinformed views on wind energy will be demolished if he accepts an invitation to appear at a Scottish Parliament inquiry.

The Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee, which is to hold an inquiry into the Scottish Government's renewable energy targets, has agreed to invite the billionaire developer to give evidence.

Committee member Scottish Green MSP Patrick Harvie said:

"The reality is Scotland can lead the way on renewables, creating jobs and protecting our environment. It appears that Mr Trump has no interest in these objectives.

"His bizarre and irrational rants do him and other anti-wind campaigners no favours. I am confident if he accepts the invitation any argument he puts forward will be flattened."
