Disappointment at councillors' decision
I was disappointed to hear that the Wells city councillors lacked foresight when they did not back the proposal for a wind turbine at Maesbury Quarry.
It is not wind turbines that downgrade our environment, but those energy sources that rely on fossil fuels.
I would much rather have wind turbines, which are tall and elegant and use natural sources of energy, than rely on a nuclear power station, with its toxic waste remaining harmful to human health and the environment for thousands of years.
Who can blame Cumbrian residents for recently rejecting plans to dump nuclear waste in their area?

Our common objective is to have a clean environment for us and our children to live in for generations to come, and access to reliable energy sources that do not pollute our environment.
In this day and age and with all the evidence on climate change available and the knowledge we have about the problems of dealing with nuclear waste, it is astonishing the Green Party city councillor, Chris Briton, was the only councillor to vote in favour of the wind turbine proposal.
To address the environmental and energy challenges we face, it is essential that we think strategically and long term, and use every opportunity to take decisions and actions that create sustainable and healthy communities free from harmful pollution.
