Secure UK's power supply
More headlines warning of greater risks of power cuts this winter. So what do we do? Go for more wind turbines like the ones proposed for Torr Works and Chantry.
And what security of supply will they give? Absolutely none. One hundred per cent backup is needed for when the wind doesn't blow. The harm they do to our countryside is totally disproportionate to any benefit they could possibly provide.
Let's be grown up about this. Wind power is nothing more than froth. A dozen nuclear power stations like Hinkley C would comfortably power the nation with low carbon energy. And cheaper than offshore wind too.
If you wish to protect our countryside against disfigurement like the Chantry Wind Turbine write to Mendip District Council and tell them what you think. Details of how to object can be found on the website nocwt.com.
