Reporting Scotland ‘waste’ opportunity to headline this REAL NEWS of Scotland’s major success!

(c) The Engineer

Well down the ‘page’ in Insider today, this candidate for headlining, across the Scottish media

‘Scotland exports renewables expertise to 72 countries’

That’s newsworthy isn’t it. It’s been a few years since I worked with first-year BA journalism students, but I feel they’d have been all over that one:

‘Jamie! 72! That’s going in the headline!’

Here’s an extract from the Insider piece. Let me know if you hear about it anywhere else in our NoMedia:

Bottom of Form

More than 70 countries across the world are benefiting from Scotland’s knowledge of renewable energy, a survey suggests. Industry body Scottish Renewables found that businesses have exported renewable energy goods or services to a total of 72 countries. The most popular export destination was the US, with nine of the 15 Scottish headquartered businesses which responded to the survey exporting to the States. This was followed by Canada, Germany, Ireland and Sweden, equally, with eight companies exporting to each country. Renewables exports to other countries include Afghanistan, Angola, Brazil, Fiji, Kazakhstan and Singapore.’

    Not a word about this in the BBC Scotland Business page, nor anywhere else. But, of course you did not expect them to.

    Naturally they lead on the new contract for clinical waste and report it in the way THE COLONEL tellt them, that is the same COLONEL whose party opposes climate change measures, but will use them to make cheap jibes.

    The Herald has a story today about a documentary on climate change involving Leonardo Di Caprio. It will be premiered at the Cannes film festival. Orkney and its involvement in the renewables sector, as well as the risk to some of its neolithic sites from climate change, features prominently.

    Something else Reporting Scotland will miss?
