Three new Lockheed Martin radars could unlock 8GW of wind power - Business Green

Presumably the 'damage' being caused is predominently to the visual landscape, so not really damage, just a change of scenery. Yes there is damage caused in the form of foundations and roads to the turbines, however,these are a relatively small part of the landscape (and ultimately, can be removed). I would much rather have wind turbines and other renewables than the alternative of climate change, which is likely to change the landscape permanently from what it is today, and not in a positive way (although what actually happens cannot be foreseen). The problem we have is that people do not (are not allowed to) take responsibility for their energy use. It is provided on a plate by large, faceless organisations located miles from the user (in the country as well as the city), who are only too happy to take the cash and keep polluting. Communities need to take responsibility ...
