Years ago, I didn’t have a view on wind farms, however, on returning from Scotland last year, I drove past a huge wind farm which was under construction (can’t remember the exact location.)
Seeing massive amounts of forest being chopped down to accommodate dozens and dozens of windmills, didn’t sit very comfortably with me.
Today, this was announced…
When I activated GW/NW-007 Aran Fawddwy, with Dave M0TUB, he asked me to take a look at the views. Quite frankly, they were breathtaking, certainly the best I’ve seen and possibly some of the finest in the country!
Maybe I’m becoming a bit senile in my old age, but when I activate a summit, do I really wish to be faced by hundreds of windmills?
One wonders, just how much more of the countryside needs to be sacrificed to feed the greed of energy companies!
I suspect, this proposed Welsh wind farm development is going to run into considerable protests and the company wishing to build it will have a big fight on their hands.
