On the turbine fence; YOUR LETTERS TO THE NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OF WALES.

* SIR - The debate about wind turbines continues and I, like many other greens with a small "g" I'm sure, still find myself sitting on the fence, unsure as to which side to come down.

The views of that well known radical and "gwerinwr" Ian Seaton of Mumbles (Letters, Aug 19) must be taken seriously.

He would not have come to his decision to oppose the erection of turbines lightly and without much consideration.

His would not be the opinions of the Nimby and should be respected.

I find myself drawn in that direction but when I think of the alternatives, dirty coal or nuclear power with its hidden dangers and costs which must be paid for by untold future generations, I tend towards the concept that spoiling the view must be better than this. On reflection I believe that the best thing we can do is to push for a proper parliament for Wales empowered to make democratic decisions on energy policy on behalf of the Welsh people.

This must be better than the present situation where we are subject to the whims of big business and the likes of the Duke of Beaufort and his cronies.
