Anti-wind turbine ad campaign banned

Scottish anti-wind turbine group's ad rapped for using images of Hawaii | Media |
A campaigning group that showed Scotland's picturesque landscape blighted by rusty, broken wind turbines has been criticised by the advertising watchdog for using images from Hawaii.
An image was used of a wind farm in Hawaii that had been built in 1987 and had been decommissioned in 2006. The model of turbine was so old there was not any chance that it could ever be used in Scotland.
...The ASA banned the ad campaign and told the campaigning group not to exaggerate claims in future ads.
