What we lose  

Credit:  The Independent, www.independent.co.uk 15 June 2012 ~~

For me “wind farms” embody everything that is wrong with man’s relationship to the natural world. The fact that a turbine is arguably a beautiful object does not mean that a landscape dominated by them remains a beautiful landscape. In fact a prospect of these monsters churning away endlessly transforms the landscape into a depressing industrial panorama – why wind-farms, not wind factories?

What we lose is the spiritual uplift we feel in the presence of the wild, of ancient landscapes made in sacred time or of landscapes made by man working in harmony with nature before the era of advanced technological exploitation. No material value can be set upon these quickening experiences.
