Turbines are so valuable

I WOULD like to express my support for Tom Latter (Lettters, July 31).
It was a pleasant change to hear from someone in favour of more turbines.
I have become intensely irritated reading letters from the same handful of people repeating over and over again the same misconceptions about wind turbines.
I would be quite happy to see even sizeable windfarms in carefully chosen sites.
Even better, smaller, locally owned sites benefiting the local community and farm turbine.
I feel that even if we are not 100% sure that global warming is happening do we want to risk waiting until it is too late?
Also, do we want our energy requirements to be met by gas and oil from politically unstable places such as the Middle East and Russia?
Do we want to rely on nuclear power with its bad track record of safety and links to weapons of mass destruction?
