Walk againts the Wind Farm in Rhondda Cynon Taff - 13 Jan 2007

A Walk Against the Wind Farm is to be held at Dare Valley Country Park in Cynon Valley, Rhondda Cynon Taff on January 13th 2007. Starts 10am from the Dare Valley Country Park Visitor Centre.

The walk aims to raise awareness about the proposed wind farm to be sited near Cwmdare and running north to Hirwaun.

Those who take part in the walk will be able to see first-hand where some of the 400ft wind-turbines might be located and discuss their effects on the local environment.

David James, Chairman of Cynon Valley Ramblers has organised the event. He advises sturdy boots and estimates that the walk should last around two and a half hours. Hopefully the weather dries out for the day.

it's true. the aesthetics of the countryside are indeed far more important than the future of life on earth.

A clear case of not in my back yard?

Seriously, the countryside and moorlands are a completely artificial environment. Windmills aren't going to damage what has already been despoiled.

What a load of bollocks. Wind farms are completely necessary.

indeed, though they're open to critique from the point of view that they provide an opportunity for capital to accumulate it's way out of ecological crisis, ignoring the foremost of the three r's: reduction of the energy used in the first place.

however since the argument seems based on aesthetics, i actually find wind turbines alright to look at relative to farmland (which is no less man-made), and they're certainly prettier than nuclear or coal-fired plants.
