By the grey North Sea

Far from being constantly cold, windy and grey, Aberdeen basks under wide open skies and offers the highest hours of sunshine of any city in Scotland.

Aberdeen Bay stretches from Girdleness, past Aberdeen harbour and the mouths of the rivers Dee and Don, for 22K northwards to the end of Forvie Sands at Rockend on the Forvie National Nature Reserve.

Aberdeen Bay is the site for an innovative offshore wind turbine deployment facility. Vattenfall's European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre consists of up to 11 wind turbines with a maximum power generation of up to 100 Mega Watts. The EOWDC will provide world-class testing facilities and training for technicians and scientists. The power generated will be exported onshore to a new substation at Blackdog, then transmitted to the National Grid. Smulders Projects in Newcastle has been awarded a deal to assemble offshore wind suction bucket anchor foundations for use in the project.

Donald Trump, a megalomanic real estate charlatan well-known for bankruptcies and objectionable views, has opposed and appealed the plan, claiming that the facility would spoil the skyline four miles offshore from his tacky golf resort on the naturally shifting sands at Menie. Threats of this kind are called ‘strategic lawsuits against public participation SLAPPing is a tactic which originated in the USA, whereby companies hell-bent on environmental destruction take the campaigners to court in order to quash opposition.

'Trump' is a Scottish word meaning 'to deceive'.

Donald has lost all his futile, filibustering Appeals against the EOWDC. Until the inevitable impeachment, he is overseeing a period of 'Post-Coherence' in a new reality TV role as President of the United States of America.

Menie's dune system contains two Sites of Special Scientific Interest. King Neptune-like, Trump has planted some marram grass 'to stop the sands shifting'. He has bulldozed and deceived, building one golf course, some hideous monuments, a granite-clad clubhouse, bunds around residents' properties, gates across access roads, and very little else.

He promised the Earth only to destroy it.
