Wind farms are no good
OH dear, John Childs is at it again, exulting over the desecration of Mynydd y Gwair (Post, March 9).
I wonder if he has ever actually got as far north as this, or explored his own country beyond it, with its wonderful variety of mountains, hills and shoreline.
Maybe he is just one of those Saturday afternoon patriots whose passion for Wales disappears on Sunday morning.
As usual, he cannot even manage a measure of courtesy, calling those who disagree with his views "dinosaurs" which seems to be his favourite word.

His logic is little better if he believes a reduction of three wind turbines will make any difference to the violation of one of Swansea's greatest assets.
Does he not know that India and China are increasing — yes, increasing — their pollution by three per cent of the world total of carbon emissions annually, nearly twice Britain's total output?
Is he protesting to the Beijing News and the Delhi Gazette? No doubt he is thrilled his beloved EU has ordered Britain to close six coal-fired power stations, although this will reduce our demand margin from 14 per cent to an uncomfortable four per cent.
Meanwhile, Germany, which has now experienced the dire consequences of a windmill policy, is being allowed to build 23 coal-fired power stations.
Is he writing to Berlin or even Brussels?
The stupid, technically illiterate policies foisted on this country by the EU and implemented by a succession of ignorant governments will, if pursued, result in a massive loss of industry to other nations, the blighting of our countryside and a real threat to domestic supply which we are unwise to take for granted. With imported gas prices increasing and increasing reliance on wind it can only be a matter of time before those of us who can still pay the bills find the lights don't come on anyway.
