Wind turbines the lesser of all evils; LETTERS.
Yes, I too yearn for twin horse drawn ploughs, double handed scythes in the hands of 20 men, rows of stooks in bendy rows across the stubble and the pungent burnt hoof smoke in the blacksmith's shack, which I relished in my youth.
Unfortunately tilting at windmills like a Welsh Don Quixote will not deter man''s insatiable need for energy. Of all the structures that Professor NIMBY would like in his back yard I would think he would choose windmills over a prison, an airport, a sewage farm or a traveller''s camp site for those who refuse to travel.
With regard to putting up windmills around Penycae I was going to put up a domestic version in my back garden until I learned that I would have to live to 140 to get my money back, but have no objection to the surrounding land being used for wind power if only to prevent it being covered in yet another soulless housing estate.
Neville Layhe, Penycae
