Anti-wind? Here's why...
YES, Swansea Labour councillor John Bayliss' comments (Stand up to Nimbys, Sept 14) were insulting to the people who have had to suffer these near-useless wind turbines built near their homes. There are far more reasons why we all should not have these turbines.
As well as ruining our countryside for ever; as well as providing only 20 to 25 per cent of their energy capacity because of the intermittency of wind; as well as needing 90 per cent back-up from fossil fuel which will emit CO2 and make us more and more dependent on gas supplies from foreign countries; as well as causing health problems due to audible and inaudible noise called the wind turbine syndrome; as well as depreciating our homes; as well as killing millions of birds and bats; as well as often setting neighbour against neighbour; as well as all the huge infrastructure costs and despoiling of our environment in the form of massive substations, rows and rows of huge electric pylons, miles of transmission lines, what about the tons and tons of concrete needed for every wind turbine?
As a result of the Government's massive public subsidies for so-called 'green policies', householders' energy bills will soar year by year, resulting in so many more people suffering energy poverty, so where is the sense in all this?
No subsidies means no wind farms.
