Spare us lectures from greenies who can't see the obvious
SIR – I really must take issue with Cameron Castle bleating on about Bennington wind turbines (letters, February 4). What he and so many other greenies don t want to acknowledge is that all the windmills in the world will not cope with our ever-increas
SIR - I really must take issue with Cameron Castle bleating on about Bennington wind turbines (letters, February 4).
What he and so many other "greenies" don't want to acknowledge is that all the windmills in the world will not cope with our ever-increasing over population of this island, especially since our government chose to open our borders up and home all and sundry.
All around Hertfordshire little estates are ever expanding and that's before the big build almost links us all together.
How will wind turbines cope then?

Don't think I don't care. For years back I and many others have been quietly doing out bit for the environment. But it is also like flogging a dead horse.
With a garden and an allotment over to fruit and vegetables, my wife and I compost much of our garden and household waste. In Stevenage we still have a weekly rubbish collection.

We put out one, occasionally two, bags a week. The norm in the street seems to be five to seven.
My wife and I have one car between us; most households have a car for each member of the family.
To break from the turmoil some humans seem to revel in, we head for the hills and countryside, whether wild or managed. For days or hours it's a lift, and time to lighten up.
But now stand on top of many hills and mountains in the British Isles and you see wind turbines.
Locally the Beane Valley and beyond has some scenic, peaceful countryside that, for now, has been saved from an eyesore.
Some of us will quietly carry on trying our best for the environment, and we don't need "greenies and bunny huggers" telling us to suck eggs.
Especially when all they can offer us is "Windmills on Sticks".
