Own goal

I dopn't want to say 'I told you so', not least because I didn't, but I could see this coming.  Despite the efforts of the NIMBYists, several areas of the UK do host wind farms, but due to piecemeal planning and excessive optimism by landowners, several are poorly located (it's as foolish as there being farms in places with low wind load factors), and some aren't even connected to the National Grid.

I support increases in the use of wind turbines as a supplement to nuclear power stations, but it has to be acknowledged that this lack of a coherent strategy is a gift to the 'anti-' lobby.
