How can racism studies contribute to the analyse of ongoing windpower exploitations in Sámi territories? (Film screening: Wind power -"green?": Sami and scientific perspective on fossil-dependent and environmentally destructive wind power design).

Large windpower industrial areas with up to 1000 windpower plants are under construction in Sábme - Sámi territories. The Swedish state, as well as actors within the energy market, environmental organisations and climate activists promote windpower as green, fossil free and environmental friendly, but is this really true?
