Double talk as our hillsides are ruined; LETTERS.
Nothing is safe or sacred to the current generation of green extremists who defy the laws of science to promote hideous industrialisation of the beautiful countryside of North Wales in pursuit of easy money and political gain.
Not a rare bird, not a quiet rural householder, nor the beauty of the landscape, nor even the human rights of those who choose to live in it can escape the ravages of the 'wind scam merchants.' .' In 2009 the brave Landscape Officer of Conwy Borough Council stood out in front of his mealy-mouthed peers and dared to say that the industrialisation of Mwdwl Eithin with massive wind turbines was an unacceptable intrusion on our hills in a protected landscape.
Now the new breed of timid bureaucrats have used every mealy-mouthed device to justify destroying the Clocaenog Forest in the pursue of bankrupt 'green' policies. If you want to read how they manage it, just look at the Secretary of State's statement now available on line, a masterpiece of double talk and back-footing that purports to put 'the national interest' up front and tramples on the rights of individuals.
Spare a thought for those whose private water supplies are threatened and who will suffer sleepless nights because of the discredited noise evaluation standard that is still in force.
