Alternative Forms of Energy - The Only Way ....

We went for a walk on Sunday up between Bacup and Burnley (Cliviger Gorge).

Here we go here we go here we go...the trusty GPS !

Up on side - along the tops - down into a place called Portsmouth (no Harbour - no railway station - they're building "executive houses" on the site of the old station - probably Beeching's fault - and no real ale in the "Roebuck" pub). Hey ho.

Up the other side - along the top to see these...

We like windmills (we like Holland as well so ...). They're not the complete answer - but they're a step in the right direction. They want to build some on Saddleworth Moor near where "Master" lives - but the posh people (you know - the "4x4orons" as we call them) don't like them - and they're getting help from none other than David Bellamy !!. Here's a funny one - there's a farm in the area with a "No Wind Farm Here" poster on the gate - and they've got a mobile phone mast just behind their buildings....count the faces !!

We need a trip to the seaside to find out more about offshore wind farms, tidal power and wave power. What with this and the "Time to Go" demo last week, I think I'm starting to catch something political off my owner - and it's good !.

The walk was nice as well - the windmills were not noisy - and we saw lots of animals happily grazing beneath them - so that's some of the arguments out of the window.

We need to think of our children -and the "wristies" to come ...
