So – What does a “wind farm” (I *do* hate that term!) look like?
The link below will take you to a web page showing the proposed Nant y Moch wind power plant in mid Wales. There are views of the beautiful wild land as it looks right now and by passing your cursor over the photographs it shows what it will look like with the turbines in place. Pretty clever!
But: If you really want to be truly appalled, it gives you a link to click to view the wind farm using Google Earth. This really is amazingly clever and shows the true horror of what is to befall this wonderful landscape. What they do not show are the bulldozed tracks and pylons associated with the development; you’ll have to imagine those horrors for yourselves.
This link is for the Nant y Moch, but you could easily substitute the location for the Monadhliath’s Dunmaglass, Allt Duinne or Corriegarth plants, or perhaps the Balmacaan Forest – or wherever these turbines are going to totally desecrate our wild land. Click this link to be amazed at the technology and appalled at what is proposed for out wild places:
