Unconvinced by wind turbines

So, we are probably going to have more giant wind turbines gracing the hills surrounding our valleys.

Another developer, Acciona Energy, is planning to undertake tests on Hirfynydd, above Seven Sisters.

Now I know many tourists visit Holland and are delighted to see the windmills there. Many others go to Norfolk for the same reason. Perhaps we can organise scenic tours for visitors to gasp at the awesome giant windmills of Neath Port Talbot but somehow I canít see people flocking in.

If, and it is not proven, we must have wind-generated energy to combat global warming then surely it should be distributed around the British Isles more fairly.
