I hope the windfarms go ahead, for the youth of tomorrow, for the local economy, for the environment. It's always someones backyard, why not ours?
Colin Mac from Lewis
Colin Mac. Naive. There will be few local jobs connected to the windfarms. Your backyard will become an industrial park, so won't move here, or will move away. Decline of North and West Lewis. Instead, they could be investing in research and tests in bio technology, wave technology, tidal power, offshore wind technology, geothermal power, solar power. Combine with more efficient power use, and mandatory insulation of homes. The "power gap" is solved, and people can be employed by these alternative sources.

So why did the gaels look a gift horse in the mouth?

Talking of buses to Point... what's happened to Isles Parliament, the satirical blogger? Has (s)he gone on strike as well? Should we send out a search party for the disappearing blog? Will the tourist signs return? Was IP a figment of my overactive imagination? We should be told.

As a general supporter of wind power, I have to say that these massive stations are designed to get people against wind power. We all could produce enough energy to power our own little houses. But why such big power lines, the wind farm won't produce as much power as conventionals, and they don't need super dooper pylons. Surely its just a smokescreen to further development in the inverness area, as I presume they are needed to carry electricity the other way..

Why does someone called Denny need all this electricity?
