Wind and tides are the future

Mr Ball uses strong words - ‘ugly’, ‘inefficient’, ‘hideous’ - to tell us that he is opposed to windfarms.

(Beverley Guardian September 7).

Can I please point out two things to him. Firstly, not everyone shares his views. I personally do not find windfarms anything like as ‘hideous’ as pylons. Secondly, he failed in his letter to say how he would ensure that 100 years from now our descendants would be able to switch on the electric kettle.

I am not an expert but believe that the tides - millions of tons of water surging back and forth twice a day - will be the ultimate answer. But please give the scientists and engineers time to sort out the huge problems.
