This video accompanies a report, The Politics of Peat: Lessons from the Derrybrien Landslide, published by the Scottish Wind Assessment Project. Note that the first 2.5 minutes are silent. It makes available news reports by Jim Fahy of Radio Telefis Éireann covering the Derrybrien bog slide of 16 October 2003 and subsequent events.
The incident, caused by the developer and contractor of a 71-turbine wind-power project, led to the widespread pollution of important European conservation areas and the death of 50,000 fish, including protected species.
