Wind farms far more popular than fracking, UK poll suggests.

FT: “Britons would prefer to live near a wind farm over a “fracking” site by a majority of three to one, according to an opinion poll published on Monday.”
“The findings appear at odds with the Conservative leadership, which is said to be mulling a moratorium on wind farms as part of its 2015 election manifesto.
….The survey conducted by YouGov was commissioned by Ecotricity, a privately owned wind energy group founded by Dale Vince, a new-age traveller turned renewables entrepreneur.
Of about 2,000 people sampled, 62 per cent favoured wind, against 19 per cent for fracking in their council area. Half those identifying themselves as Conservative voters said they preferred to live near a wind farm.”
