Wind turbines look majestic

WHAT is it with the British, whenever anything new is proposed.
The objectors pour out of the woodwork, all the usual magic words are used such as "blot on the landscape" and "environmental disaster".
I'm surprised we have not had a mention of safety.
These wind structures look wonderful, majestic, graceful, like moving sculptures set into the countryside. In my opinion this type of development should be encouraged.

As to whether the turbines will produce enough power, obviously the company thinks they are economic and, presumably, if they are not they would be moved to somewhere new.
With regard to noise, I have been close to these machines and was not aware of any disturbing noise apart from the general "swish" of the sails which is a sound that does not carry large distances.

It is time in the UK to join the real world, for example look at our neighbours the French to see what they achieve. They have motorway art and sculpture and wind farms.
They are not afraid to be adventurous with their architecture: we could learn a lot if our minds were not so totally closed to aesthetic new ideas.
