Tony Blair, before Christmas 2005, admitted that wind power was not effective in the fight against global warming. Think on it.
His [Dr. Charles Warren] study has little relevance to the debate on wind farms, and it is unhelpful for him to offer up what appears to be disingenuous research.
These fairly pointless articles, which only work an average of three days out of seven, blight the landscape to little purpose.
"Because of its intermittent nature, wind power generation must be backed-up up by ‘dirty' fossil-fuelled power generation. The country's current renewable energy ambitions are therefore likely to usher in a matching 'dash for gas' to maintain security of supply, with the risks this implies for greater exposure on gas imports.
I live in Croeserw and I had beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.
Now I cringe at the view from the rear of my home - 16 gigantic wind turbines on the Abercregan Mountain, like something out of a science-fiction film.
To make matters worse, the Spanish company Gamesa plans to erect another 10 turbines on mountains in front of my house which will be nearly twice the size of the ones already standing - in fact, the largest in Europe - and another four of this size on the Glyncorrwg Mountain, which is to the rear right of my house.
Croeserw and Cymmer will be surrounded by wind turbines, which will be seen through the whole of the Afan, Llynfi and Garw valleys if this proposal goes ahead.
The people of the Valleys must unite and say NO! to this rape of our beautiful countryside.
Despite this overwhelming public wish, a tiny planning decision committee (PDC) of four AMs overthrew the inquiry inspector's finding against the wind farm. To add insult to this undemocratic injury, WAG has now proposed that the PDC procedure shall be scrapped.
One can only hope the new procedure will bend more to the will of the people.
In Provence's Valee des Baux, where we live when not at home in Moray, wind farms are forbidden. Being France's most popular southern tourist destination, there is a consensus in Les Baux that any development likely to jeopardise the area's outstanding beauty must be banned. Similarly, Moray's future as a truly unique tourist destination in Scotland, and ultimately in Europe, will depend on how well it protects its own unique landscape.
I view with dismay how your counties of the South West are being ravaged by the desire of others for you to solve the world's climate change problems.I am not surprised that the wind farm development at Fullabrook Down in North Devon was passed. Cornwall has been an easy target for developers and now, with government blessing, the race is on to ruin Devon. ...One problem for our ministers, planners and inspectors is that unless they take the time to do independent research, the technical data they are presented with will have been supplied either directly by the British Wind Energy Association or an agency which gets it from the same source. While the public begins to wise up to wind power the Government still sees what it wants to.
