All this is like electric cars- a complete circus, and it is costing the electricity consumers directly and tax payers indirectly with all the government subsidies.Apparently... Something similar happened here in Rochdale... Our horizon has changed dramatically in each direction...
There are more planned.... There has been no official announcement but rumors that cabling was being overloaded due to surges from the turbines..
I am with you on the not ugly aspect- I think wind turbines are a beautiful piece of aeronautical engineering, just like Concorde, but I wouldn't want a load of Concords parked all over the countryside. The same goes for the Flying Scotsman.I don't think they are ugly... I just wish they would source some storage facility.... Otherwise turbines are next to useless...
In spite of all the flack, one thing about DT is that he cuts to the core through all the BS which is gradually strangling both the UK and US.After much acrimony, bad feeling and name calling, the man who was recently elected President of the USA was given planning permission to build a golf course and hotel on the coast just north of Aberdeen.
The golf course was completed a few years ago, the hotel is not yet started.
The Scottish government has plans to create a windfarm a few miles offshore just north of Aberdeen.
The windfarm would be in full view from the golf course.
On hearing of this, Donald J. had a bit of a hissy fit and told Nicola and Co that he was most unhappy that these ugly turbines should spoil his golf course, and if they did not build them somewhere else out of sight he would not build his hotel. He also informed that wind turbines do not work.
I agree, but, there is something disturbing in his manner. I get the impression that he thinks that his ideas are the only way to get things done.one thing about DT is that he cuts to the core through all the BS which is gradually strangling both the UK and US.
I agree with you there as well.Just look at the complete shambles and incompetence about Brexit (UK resigning from the common market). It beggars belief.

Without getting into the right/wrong aspects of the idea of leaving the EU, how the hell do they expect to unravel the complexities which have taken 40 years or so to build. Impossible!
Good points Jim.Putting on my Moderators Hat for a minute, I hope this thread does not degenerate into a raging political debate.
"Unbelievably silly" has been the normal, default state of US TV for a long time. I haven't bothered watching daily TV news in over 30 years; the only times I've tuned in have been to catch the election results in national elections.Extreme cases were the coverage, by the media, of the Scottish referendum (Scotland separating from the UK), the Brexit referendum (UK leaving the European Union), and the recent election of DT. The UK media, especially BBC TV, were a disgrace and, in the latter case, the US TV that I saw was unbelievably silly.
