Energy at what price?
JOHN Stockwell (Have Your Say, February 21) says he is not an active campaigner for wind turbines but he is fed up with letters on the subject and suggests a ban on them.
He asks what other alternatives there are and points out that no one wants nuclear power or coal-fired stations near them.
People already have them near to them and they are still being built along with useless intermittent turbines. While successive governments are hell bent on ignoring the plea from homegrown developers for lagoons, barrages, cheaper solar power and grants, clean coal and hydroelectric power they prefer to throw our money at multi-national companies.
It has been claimed that, as Britain flaunts its environmental credentials by speckling its coastlines and unspoiled moors and mountains with thousands of wind turbines, it is contributing to a vast manmade lake of poison in northern China.

One national newspaper revealed that, hidden out of sight behind factory complexes in the city of Baotou, and patrolled by platoons of security guards, lies a five-mile wide tailing lake.
The report claims it has killed farmland for miles around, made thousands of people ill and put one of China's key waterways in jeopardy.
We need electricity, but at what price?
