Below is a link to my website.
if only we could keep them offshore in Scotland
I don't mind them out at sea but in North Wales they have ruined acres of beautiful landscape.
Just watched a small one knock a bird clean out the sky yesterday.
Give me turbines anyday above other options even biomass stations, you can take them down and return the land to it's former state in a few years and they are a pretty good stop gap to make sure the energy needs for the UK are covered. Try removing major power plants and return the land to it's original form.... best you can do with a nuclear power plant is bury it then what!? The land will always be there under the turbines and they are not permenent although they might outlive most of us, if we want to leave the lights on and have 3 TV's then they need to be there.

As the previous poster said.
They are not pretty and they are not perfect but we don't have many realistic options at the present time, we can't continue to burn fossil fuels, and nuclear is too scary to even consider, .think of your grand kids and their grand kids.
Renewable energy is not very efficient at this moment in time, but its where we should be looking to in the future
if that means putting up with unsightly wind turbines at the present time, so be it.
As previous poster said the land could be easily restored to its natural state some time in the future,you can never ever do that with nuclear.
"Don't say I didnae warn ye !"
I really don't understand people who complain about wind turbines spoiling the view - the alternatives are all substantially worse.
Really? You'd prefer something with fuc*king great cooling towers and plumes of smoke/steam on your nice moorland instead? Oh - but they're ok because they're in someone else's backyard, so I get my power AND my view and sod the rest of you...
I live within spitting distance of three large power stations and all can be seen at the same time if I walk 400 yards from my door !!!! So give me wind turbines any day !!!!!
All pull together to raise the phoenix from the ashe
