Vestas are trying to cash in on their sudden notoriety with a big advertisement feature on the Guardian Environment webpages: “Energy Matters: In Association with Vestas Wind Systems”.
Alongside a fairly balanced piece, “Vestas protest: What’s it all about?”, there are big banner adverts with Vestas twirling wind turbines. Take a look here.

Question: When did the Guardian and Vestas start cooking up this little collaboration?
Answer: Five days ago, at a guess. Lads, you stay in there as long as you like – you’re making Guardian Newspapers and Vestas a little pot of money. And, at the end of the day, that’s all that matters to these people.
