Wind farms are defiling the UK’s timeless beauty  

Credit:  30 April 2023 | strathspey-herald.co.uk ~~

Wind turbines (windmills) were adopted without pilot studies and against the advice of Sir David Mackay, Cambridge University’s engineering professor.

They were marketed as Green.

They have been foisted on us, defiling our land, damaging its timeless beauty and impairing tourism.

Considering their foreign manufacture demanding steel, water, concrete and energy in vast amounts, their transport, installation, servicing, lubricating oil use and demolition, they are anything but Green.

The non-recyclable blades demand landfill. They kill avian wildlife and damage human health.

Their wind-dependent electricity generation is intermittent.

Constant fossil fuelled backup is essential. They last less than 20 years. The costs are vast.

Our country is ‘broke’.

Dermot Williamson’s defence of the UK’s windmills (Badenoch and Strathspey letters, April 20th) as a contribution to the offsetting of global adverse climate changes is mistaken.

Windmills’ purported benefit in lessening carbon dioxide (CO2) output is dwarfed by the many nations, including China and India, whose policies debar significant decarbonisation.

These release most of the planet’s man-made CO2.

Aileen Jackson’s plea for petitions (Strathy, April 13) is entirely in the right.
