WIND ENERGY: Turbines so much better than using coal and gas

I would like to reply to the letter from Paul Woods from Spalding which appeared in Lincolnshire Free Press last Tuesday.

In his letter Mr Woods states he would not like to live next to a wind farm because of the noise they cause.

He then states we need coal- and gas-powered stations, not wind farms blotting the Lincolnshire landscape.

I for one would not like to see coal and gas power stations blotting the Lincolnshire landscape.

Wind farms are far more pleasing to the eye, and cause less pollution.

Also you don’t need the extra traffic and trains to fuel the wind farms.

Also if Mr Woods does not want to live next to a wind farm, I assume he would be happy living next on of thosebig ugly gas or coal power station.

Or does he want them built next to someone else?
