Chance to learn more about Navitus Bay

By Richard Wright

Thursday, January 2, 2014

 

CONSULTATION over the Navitus Bay offshore wind park is to enter its fifth year.

The latest in a series of drop-in sessions to give the public the chance to meet the project team and learn more about the next stage takes place at the Riverside Centre, Newport, on January 21, between 3pm and 6pm.

The planning application, for the UK’s biggest offshore wind farm, is expected early next year.

Yes, Steve and neil, I was having a jab at Mike's failure to put forward any form of coherent argument when it comes to his expostulations regarding "roof and road", bridges and turbines. He wants a bridge, but not turbines. He wants a bridge, but not more "roof and road", but refuses to explain how to have a bridge without more "roof and road".

As a retired scientist with experience in atmospheric infra-sound research I grow increasingly concerned about the possible health effects that this turbine array will generate. Infrasound (below 20hz and 'inaudible') propagates a very long distance and has been shown to cause effects like 'sick building syndrome'. There is just not enough known about atmospheric infra-sound to make the statements put about by the wind turbine industry that it is safe!

Neil,
I think you'll find James was tongue-in-cheek there,

Mike doesn't want a eyesore off our coast but will be happy to see an "eyesore" of a bridge off our coast! (even though it will never happen in his or our lifetime)

Yes, Mike.

We don't want a large eyesore off our coast, do we?

Irrespective of concerns about global warming, what this country needs is to be energy independent.

That means Nuclear, Shale Gas and renewables.

At the moment the protests on the IW are focussed on Wind, but you can bet that if, for example, Shale Gas was discovered on the IW, the usual suspects would come out against that, as well.
