The Donald Hates Wind Turbines

Donald Trump plans to use "any legal means" to prevent the building of a new windfarm in Scotland. The American mogul, television personality and all-around nice guy is concerned that the proposed windfarm, in Aderdeen Bay, Scotland, will block the view from his under-construction championship golf course.

The course itself is being built against the objections of several environmental groups, including The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the Scottish Wildlife Trust. Despite the fact that the wind turbines will be built about 1.5 miles from the course, The Donald's representative says "I don't think it's a good idea to interfere with our investment."

Luckily, it's highly unlikely that Trump's objection will succeed, since the windfarm is supported by the European commission and the Scottish government. Still, given what Scottish wind does to The Donald's "hair" (as in the above picture from 2008), it's easy to see where he's coming from.
