Good article in the Guardian about the current wind power debate; read An Ill Wind?
I'm wholly in favour of wind power but can see that there has to be a consensus on the issue of scale. No one wants to live in an industrialised landscape so clearly onshore wind farms have to be kept to a reasonable scale. We saw some in Cornwall last year and thought they looked quite pleasant but they were small installations of a dozen or less. The answer has to be to build the big wind farms offshore at sea.
