Green and Pleasant Land or Dark Satanic Windmills?

Our ‘Dark Satanic Mills’…

How do you like the countermeasures your elected representatives have given us to combat climate-change? After all, you wouldn’t have elected them without their “green” credentials, would you? Every politician knows that current science suggests we burn less of those damaging fossil fuels in order to preserve our planet  so man can live here. Surely even the sceptics, who maintain that climate change is a  naturally occurring  feature of our planet, understand that the current manifestations require urgent action – don’t they? Well yes, but what is a politician to do with all this science? Answer: Don’t let climate change ruin our earth with those gases, just scar and deface its most scenic areas and thereby take away one of the reasons for living in and visiting our country.

For those who do live, work or visit the British countryside and are aware of the inheritance of charm and beauty that we have cherished for timeless generations, this recent act of destruction by the placing of windfarms across great tracts of our countryside is baffling. After all, why try to give yourself “green” credentials by the wanton destruction of our irreplaceable heritage? Well, the part answer we all know is filthy lucca, money for the uninitiated, which we as taxpayers are throwing in bucketfuls at these modern ‘dark satanic windmills’

Do we really want our countryside spoiled by this?

And what of us, the voting public? Why do we continue to elect such representatives who act with such ineptitude? The answer is bribery. In the hamlets, villages and communities up and down this pleasant land, windfarm companies shower down large sums to ‘give community benefit’ and wish us to share in the ‘attractions’ of saving our planet. As they do this, on our doorstep the shadow of ever larger turbines looms over us, changing the landscape from one the centuries have created, one which had been the envy of the world to an endless forest of metal.

Meanwhile those whom we elect tell those selfsame windfarm companies that it is their duty to share in the riches they gain to give this ‘community benefit’ to all who live nearby. A bribe by any other name and a bribe that we as taxpayers are most certainly partaking in! Let it be known that as much as £50,000 is sometimes paid out to landowners and local communities for EACH turbine that blots their local landscape! All this in the grant of ‘feed-in’ tariffs for the known inefficiencies of wind power.

So strange to think of nuclear as the greenest of the green!  Will you want to live in a windmill country? If so, tell your children to marry a Dutchman.
