'Garden' is at risk  

So the Pendine wind farm is to be more than doubled in size.

The county council says this is acceptable. But when the original scheme was proposed some years ago the county council opposed it on environmental grounds.

What those of us who have been opposing wind turbines for many years have forecast is now coming to pass. Before long there won’t be a viewpoint in the “Garden of Wales” from which you will not see these machines, which will be making a lot of money for a few developers and landowners, while producing comparatively little electricity.

As for helping combat climate change, research by Jesse Ausubel, professor of environmental science at Rockefeller University, New York, indicates huge swathes of countryside would need to be industrialised to produce significant reductions in CO2 emissions. Is this really what we want so we can carry on behaving as if there were no tomorrow?
