WIND turbines are far more attractive than electricity pylons, but we must be careful where we site them. The occasional turbine on someone's country estate is one thing, but it would not be right for them to sprout up all over suburbia in people's back gardens. I think the grouping of wind turbines in carefully chosen positions in the landscape and offshore is quite beautiful and a reminder that energy can be harnessed, if not free - because there is an initial and a maintenance cost with very few negative effects on the environment, as far as we know.
