Yes but all of these places are already blighted by roads, which though useful (just like wind turbines) are noisier and more of a threat to wildlife. And mr Torygraph reader in case you haven't noticed, roads Don't Look Nice(TM).

The author of the piece needs a good kicking for using the word "blight" to describe wind mills.
