Hidden problems windfarms

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4070460.stm

Just read this -

Approval for a major upgrade of pylons through the Cairngorms would blight the face of the national park, according to a new campaign group.

They want to construct massive pylons through the National Park - WHY - to carry the electricity from bloody wind farms - not only do they destroy what little wilderness we have left but then they have to destroy other areas to move the power around - and the costs of the wind farms NEVER show all the other costs involved!!!

Very true. Funny how the French seem to have acquired the mantle of finest gastronomes in Europe, when in fact it should belong to the Belgians. Mind you, they're bloody dangerous drivers and the roads are full of potholes!

Horsemeat aint too bad.......... the smell of the meat is , however quite different.. The French/per caput eat more horsemeat than the Belgiums.Anyway while you on it-- DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU EAT ANYWAY??- remember - I think the UK suffered from MAD COW desease.............. ah. I see it now Codders-- you were eating that cheap meat in 2000...... explains a lot. They say the first signs of madness comes from irrelevevent comments on RibNet?. If I were you -stick to windfarms... Afterall the turbines are pretty inoffensive apart from being practically useless. Me - I am a nuclear man.

BSE - isn't it strange how Britain suffered from it but nobody else did? Or could it be because we actually LOOKED???

When the Europeans actually gof of their arses and LOOKED they found they had it as well............

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/1097279.stm

Funny how nobody banned French meat though!!!

Oh and Belgium had it as well........

What would your ideal solution to the UKs power needs be then, burn more oil, more coal, build more Selafields , Codprawn are you one of these Do Gooders , what was the plan to get the free wind electricty in the first instance, of course its got to be distrubited, would you like it better if the cables were underground?
There is already pylons there anyway,.......

Build more Nuclear power stations - they actually have less impact on people than ANY of the other methods!!!

The French are one of the few countries that can meet the Kyoto CO2 levels because they have a lot of Nuclear power.

In London in the 1950s smog from burning coal killed 12,000 people or more - did anyone call for coal to be banned???

People harp on about how terrible nuclear power is and how long the radiation lasts - remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki are thriving cities now.

PROPERLY controlled there is nothing wrong with Nuclear power - but there is a hell of a lot RIGHT with it.
