Complainant Name:
Mr Andrew Copland

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Andrew Copland complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the article had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The complainant felt that the article had suggested a correlation between wind farms and climate change. He said that the NASA research paper reported in the article only found warmer air in the immediate vicinity around wind farms; as such, the warming effect was one without global implications.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the headline to the online article to ‘Wind farms raise local temperature at night'.
