I agree Bazooka. Haven't these people HEARD of nuclear energy.If you could site a new nuclear power station in a convenient place such as Shoreham or Newhaven, you wouldn't need these hideous monsters reaching up into the sky. Not only do they kill birds but they also make a tremendous din that can be heard for miles. They are a complete eyesore and they produce virtually no electricity !! I would have NO hesitation in laying the foundation stone of a power station on one of the above sites. It's clean, efficient and cheap ! And so what if the waste is a problem. We're human beings for God's sake. We're resourceful. If they do build the turbines I for one will be moving to Japan.

Rosebud, did you know your user name is gay slang for a rectal prolapse! That'll be from talking through your butt!

Thank you jonnyboy (straight slang for condom dispensing machine), you made me laugh out loud ! And by the way Rosebud is my real name. Hope you're happy now !

Japan Rosebud?
Perhaps you could advise them on the clean up of their recent nuclear disaster and get some first hand knowledge of the devastation when these things go wrong!

I reckon it would be a good idea to make musical turbines.

Sorry about that I tend to stutter a lot.

After watching Age of Stupid, seeing posh old farts campaigning to stop development of wind turbines really made my bloody boil. You'll be dead soon, stop being selfish and let the willing and able make a positive, renewable change for the future without nuclear power.

Hear, hear Cliffite. Not helped by complete idiots like UKIP advocating continuing to rape the earth rather than modify our consumption of fossil fuels, in the fracking thread. If ever I needed a reason not to vote UKIP*, that post sums it up nicely.

I do wish people would wise up about the true cost of wind turbines as they seem to glaze over when words such as "sustainability", "carbon footprint" and "eco-friendly" are used.
What about raping the Earth for materials used in the manufacture of turbines, the transportation costs and maintenance?

No surprise, but my vote goes to nuclear power.

Pretty sure the overall cost is a lot lower than dealing with nuclear waste and the building of a nuclear power plant :-/

If you are talking about sustainability and value for money - nuclear is by far the most efficient source.
In terms of health risks from nuclear fuel - I would imagine more people have been injured/died during the manufacture and transportation of turbines!

I like windmills...wind mills good..more please.
the only reason off shore wind farms have been avoided is because they interfere with radar..but as we all spy on each other from space it doesn't matter.

Does anyone know if an advantage to wind turbines will be lower electricity bills?
