Wind power not answer

Letter #3 to the editor: Adelaide "Sunday Mail", 30 August 2009

So Labor's Renewable Energy Bill has been passed. It mandates 20 per cent energy from renewable sources by 2020.

This would be OK if it was from hydroelectricity, like the Snowy Mountain Scheme, but I object to having our beautiful landscape defiled by ugly windmills which are uneconomic even when the wind blows.
