Alien structures will scar our landscape  

As an Ogmore Valley community councillor and an active member of my community, I wish to register my concern over the planned installation of wind turbines along the ridges of the hills surrounding my village.

Let there be no doubt, these turbines are huge alien structures that will scar our landscape for the decades to come and once here they are not going to go away.

We will be passing them down to our children and our grandchildren and as such I feel that it is essential that our councillors and Assembly Members reject the various planning applications placed before them.

Do not forget that our valley was exploited by the coal owners who made vast profits from coal and then when the coal era was finished the area was left a nightmare landscape of abandon tips, a black lifeless river and dead earth.

All this environment abuse was removed at great public expense and the valley returned to its pre-industrial condition; once again our valley has become green.

We are now facing a second industrialisation of our valley – this time mainly by two multi-national companies, one Spanish and one German, who have no loyalty to Wales or our small valley community but only to their own profit and loss accounts.

The total CO2 savings to the global environment from the destruction of the peace of our valley will be negligible and will be lost in a global rush by world powers to grow their own economies.

The USA is the greatest polluter on the planet and has not signed any international agreement to cut its CO2 emissions. So will encircling our small Welsh valley with massive alien structures save the world? I doubt it.
