Have your say

I really don’t understand the problem with a wind farm off the south coast of the Isle of Wight.

Do we want to save the planet or not? It seems the only problem comes from what they look like.

I find the turbines mesmerising and think they have a certain beauty.

Driving through France, they are the norm, constantly visible. They certainly haven’t spoilt the vista of the countryside.

Then comes the news we are to build a nuclear power station in the beautiful Somerset countryside.

I reckon this is hypocritically crazy.

The power of the wind and sea really should be embraced and used to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels.
