Reading anti-wind farm letters, it is easy to forget the reason they are being built: climate change and the catastrophe it will bring, something disputed by no reputable scientific organisation.
It is clear that we have to do something. For me, wind energy, is currently the best clean energy source we have. Although it is more expensive than conventionally generated electricity, that seems a reasonable exchange for a habitable planet.
I suspect the reason the development of wind energy is supported by all political parties and many reputable organisations such as Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and the Worldwide Fund for Nature is that it works. I am happy to take their advice on this.
