Well for the urban dweller, you know the ones that fill out those survey form to say they think turbines are great, wild land is just an empty piece of pretty boring peat and bog. Better for a wind farm and a lot of roads that walkers will enjoy. You could even improve things more by building a Tesco up there so that none of the walkers and cyclists need to struggle up with rucksacks full of food! Yes, well now I may be getting silly! But I think you have the idea. Those peat hags and bogs are actually intrinsic to our ecology. Within them and the burns, the forests and the Lochs, Scotland would be a barren desert. Thanks though to Phil Lambert who has painted a marvellous word picture that those of us that tarry a while and see the ptarmigan, the Golden Eagle, the snakes and the voles, the red squirrel and the pine marten, will understand. Those that race through in car, trail bike or mountain bike are poorer for what they don’t see. But nature is not to be hurried as these Monadliaths, Glen Affric and Kintail know all to well. Hundreds of thousands of years went into their creation and yet man, in his arrogance, is destroying them in a moment. Read Phil’s letter here.

Wind V. Coal
Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
