LETTER: Wind farm desecration of wonderful part of England

If the reports that a massive wind farm is to be built off the Sussex coast are true then there should be a public outcry at such a desecration of one of the most wonderful parts of England. These turbines, so beloved by fanatical green activists, are basically useless, as they produce derisory amounts of electricity, operate at their claimed efficiency for only a small part of the time, cost a fortune to build and maintain and destroy the natural beauty of the land or seascape wherever they appear.

It is no surprise that a Liberal Democrat like Ed Davey should approve this project as his party specialises in such insane policies but it also says much about the stupidity of politicians as a whole that they constantly bow the knee to vociferous minorities rather than allowing common-sense to determine such vital matters as the supply of energy.
