WHILE I have no objection to farmers diversifying their crops, I find Duncan Boughton's comments in last week's edition somewhat disturbing. Has he not heard of freedom of speech?

Perhaps he had plans to build more turbines but is aware that his own parish council recently stated that "turbines are an eyesore as they don't blend in with the landscape and we won't be supporting any more".

If Mr Boughton and his consortium really want their children to mitigate climate change I hope they are also telling him the true facts. For example, the UK contributes to about two per cent of the world's carbon emissions. Therefore, wind turbines built in this country will have negligible effect on global emissions.

By the way, having a flypast by a large Hercules aircraft during the opening ceremony is not sending the correct green message to our future generations.
