useless windmills

This picture was taken just up the road from my house.We are about 1 1/2 miles away.

These useless monstrosities cost millions to erect and for minimal power creation,(about 12/15% of alleged maximum output.

If we rely on these things for power the lights will go out!

Incidently, the farmer, whose land they are on gets £17,000 per year, per turbine! We are paying for this!!

The pylons in the foreground are 1/2 a mile nearer. Zoom in to see how 415ft high turbines compare!

I noticed them the other day whilst out cycling, wondered where they had come from and why there?
Then i remembered last year seeing posters pinned in the area protesting against plans for a wind farm, all in vain it seems. A blot on an otherwise beautiful landscape.

Aren't you the lucky one! All those beautiful big fans to keep everybody in your village nice and cool in the heat of the blazing summer that we have been promised this year.
