Donald Trump Willing To Scrap Plans For Hotel And Housing At His Scottish Golf Resort If Wind Towers Go Up Offshore

Donald Trump’s bullying is continuing overseas and hopefully the folks behind the offshore wind turbines in Scotland won’t knuckle under. Trump has taken it to a new level and he is now threatening to not build the planned hotel and housing at his golf resort to protest Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group’s offshore wind turbines that his spokesperson Trump Wind Turbinedescribes as an “ugly industrial park directly off the shoreline.” Marine Scotland will decide soon if they’ll go forward with the turbines. For environmentalists, this could be a double-win – no more development on the protected Scottish coast and they get their wind turbines. But if they’re looking to compromise, we proposed a solution in Sep 2011 that might satisfy both parties – Trump gets to see his name and Scotland gets their renewable energy.

Scottish Wind Farm Builders, We Have A Solution To Get Donald Trump Off Your Backs.

Donald Trump is choosing to be an arse in Scotland because being a dong in the U.S. was not enough. First, he pushed through his plan to build a 36 hole golf resort just north of Aberdeen on a protected stretch of Scottish coastline and now he’s opposing the installation of an 11-turbine offshore wind farm. In his words they’re “big, ugly structures” and their installation would be “disastrous and environmentally irresponsible.”

The planning application for the wind farm was submitted by Marine Scotland in August 2011 and would be constructed under a joint venture between Vattenwall (utility), Technip (engineering) and the Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group.

Now they could fight Trump or they could take our unsolicited advice on how to get his support and complete their wind farm project:

Trump - The Wind Turbine
Donald Trump loves seeing name and I’m sure his people will kick in for the cost of the decal. He’ll move on and you’ll get your clean energy – it’s a win win. Putting “Trump” on the blades would probably be overkill but you should leave that option open [because he loves seeing his name].
