Don't take kids near the rotors  

WE in Swansea, Wales, refused Tesco’s planning permission for a wind turbine.

They did not appeal. These turbines are not green toys.

They kill birds and bats that are protected.

They can fragment and hurl debris everywhere dangerously.

I would urge parents not to take their children to Tesco near the wind turbine.

You’d not let them loose in a working coal mine or steelworks.

Next time you visit Tesco ask to see the manager and ask exactly what is the average real output of their wind turbine.

Then divide the kilowatts by the average electric kettle 2.2kw to see if you could make a cup of tea. I doubt it!

Ioan M. Richard,

City and County Councillor,
