Whistling in the wind?
TORY MP David Duguid should know better than to promise 250,000 green jobs (“Britain leads the way in the green industrial revolution”, The Herald, January 5). In 2010 the Offshore Wind Group, which consisted mainly of Scottish Government departments and wind energy companies, published a document titled Scotland’s Offshore Wind Route Map” which estimated that
28,377 Scottish jobs in offshore wind would be created by 2020. According to bodies like the Office for National Statistics, the outcome was only between 1,700 and 1,900 jobs.
