Wind turbines are noisy and unappealing  

Credit:  Letters to the Editor | Bournemouth Echo | www.bournemouthecho.co.uk ~~

Typical of these out of touch Liberal Democrats to support a policy previously roundly defeated by the public, it shows their total ignorance and understanding on these monstrous wind turbines which are inefficient and destructive to the environment.

A two megawatt is made up of 260 tons of steel that required 300 tons of iron ore and 170 tons of coking coal, all mined and transported by hydrocarbons.

The wind turbine can spin until it falls apart and never generate as much energy as was invested in building it.

Wind turbines are noisy and unappealing aesthetically, they adversely impact the physical environment.

They are intermittent, depending on the weather.

Their life span is approximately 20 years, then decommissioning takes place.

If there is a need for green energy then invest in tidal power – totally reliable, more environmentally friendly.
