Don’t let it happen
I would like to know why Shetland Charitable Trust is so desperate to destroy the beautiful scenery of the Shetland Islands by these monstrous turbines. We don’t require all this power.
Is it the 22 councillors who don’t care about the island? Or is it the money they hope to gain for themselves? Councillors who are working for Viking Energy should not be allowed to vote on this issue nor receive any money from Viking. They are voted on to the council to do a job for the interest of the isles, not to satisfy their own ends.
These isles are beautiful and should be kept that way. People (tourists) come to see this lovely place, the sea and all its wildlife.
Shetland, don’t let this happen. Shetland is praised for its untouched beauty and landscapes and recognised as a Geopark.
If Viking is so desperate to tame the wind why doesn’t it put the windfarm in the middle of the Atlantic and leave the beautiful isles in peace? Just think, all those turbines all over the place. Viking will give you lots of money but later on without doubt will put the price of energy up.
There are coal, oil and nuclear power stations from Land’s End to John o’ Groats and have that much energy they sell it abroad over the grid and don’t give a damn about your isles.
Waken up Shetlanders. Be aware of the disaster about to unfold in front of your eyes. I really hope this doesn’t happen.
