There has been much discussion in the Herald in recent weeks concerning “wind farms” which as usual, has its proponents and its opponents.
I have refrained from entering into this argument since I feel that the protagonists are either those in favour, generally those who are going to make money, such as the companies involved and the politicians/councillors who will receive “gratuities” of some form or another or those who will be affected adversely by the erection of those abominations that generate power.
I could add my “two-penn’orth” in a long discourse but will merely suggest that those who are really interested stop listening to those whose interest is limited to financial gain.
A good example of the harm both to the environment and the population can be seen by anyone who can connect to the Internet.
A search for Hawaiian wind farms on the internet or You Tube:
See //www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj tQVe7l6ts will certainly open the eyes of those not wholly aware of the damage caused by the usage of this method of power generation.
This could be Australia in the future.
The fallacious argument that the use of “wind farms” (which I always thought was another name for Parliament) would result in cheaper electricity, has the same truth as the privatisation of ETSA as promised so long ago.
I am still waiting for that wondrous day.
