*If you don't know what to do with yourself this summer, we suggest you take a trip to Østerild Klitplantage in the north of Jutland right now!
A nice bunch of activists, hippies and local people are camping in the forest in order to prevent the most silent area in Denmark from being cut down and shaped as an industrial test center for windmills.  
We are NOT against windmills, but...  Come to Thy (read more here..)

250 meters high windmills, meant for off-shore use, are going to be placed in North-Europe's biggest Nature Reserve for Birds.
Actually the mills will be placed just between the Nature Reserve for birds and Denmark's first National Park. White-tailed Eagles and Cranes are among the very rare birds living here.

Besides the unnecessary destruction of nature, also the decision-process is strongly criticized, as the decision for this 23 Million Euro project was made in 5 weeks; - for comparing, a farmer needs 6 months to get permission to buy 100 more cows.

One of the conclusions is that the Danish government does not respect the facts, and do not respect their own words about democracy.

Det er oplagt at der er brug for at Politikens leder (og avisens holdning) ikke står uimodsagt,
og at lederens grundlag er alt for snæversynet og forudindtaget.
