I'm not surprised that so many Brits are for wind power since the GBP is largely ignorant about alternative energy.
Wind farms just dont produce enough energy, cost too much to produce, and take up too much space to be anything like efficient, especially for a
continent as tiny as GB. Unfortunately the situation right now is that the wind farm turbine industry is inflating the usefulness of these things
purely so their businesses can survive. So they fudge the facts and data, and well meaning environmentalists promote these things without knowing how
crap they actually are.
These things are a primitive roadbump on the path to alternative energy. There are a few viable alternatives around right now, unfortunately all the
patents for them are kept under lock and key by the oil industry.
