Cam Walker (campaign co-ordinator for Friends of the Earth, Melbourne): "The damage being done by coal is far worse than a scattering of wind farms across the landscape. And unlike open-cut coal mining, turbines are compatible with other land uses. They also provide substantial income to land owners. The test case being heard this week will set a significant precedent for the future of this emerging and job rich industry. In many ways it marks a fork in the road in deciding where our state's energy policy will go. Let's hope that common sense prevails."
