If were going to have a civilised discussion on wind power i am interested in taking part, but you have already made your mind up "Over my dead body"
How do you suggest we have sustainable or renewable energy, Nobody wants nuclear or wind power or pylons so suggestions plz.

I have no objection to wind power, I just happen to think that the Atlantic ocean is a much bigger and better site. Also what happened to the discussion on using the power of Waves. The amount on windmills their discussing for the midlands are obscene, What about the wildlife? Why is there a case before the Courts at the moment by people who are driven to distraction and Ill health by the constant noise? And why is it always the case that the brains who pick the sites always go for the cheapest option with no regard for landscape or people and usually live furthest from them. Whats wrong with Making them think a little bit more and spending a little more of the vast profits they"ll inherit for a project that that will completely and utterly destroy the Landscape.

There are two wind farms around here and I don't mind them at all. I'd worry about the ecological end of things and the impact on biodiversity alright. If that was someones main worry though then sticking them out at sea wont lessen the impact, just pass it on.

To me they aren't an eyesore. I haven't noticed any noise or heard any complaints from the people that live quite close to them. Most people are all for renewable energy just so long as it doesn't effect their area.

how come birds dont fly into TV cables, electric cables, pylons trees, houses in the numbers they say will fly into windturbines. I have seen them in a number of places and dont have a problem with them ,up close there is a noise but 200mtrs away iv not noticed it. So far wave power has not being developed on a large enough scale to produce electricity, if we dont use natural resources what do you suggest. We all cant be NIMBYs.
