Natural threshing of corn,
Drying clothes,
Travel in sailing boats,
Windmills to grind our corn.

Unlike the Sun, it goes almost un-heralded
and by many derided as something cold, mean and menacing.

So now is the time to face up and give our thanks and to support the new technology that turns wind into energy and count our blessings.

Like so many things, because it is free we don’t really value it…

These photos are from my travels to Sweden where mills are at the heart of the community even in small hamlets – old mills used for food and new windmills (wind turbines) used for energy – showing that wind power can span the centuries to gather natural carbon-less wind.

So let’s embrace wind turbines in some way and harness the power of the wind for everyone.

  • Chris Wharton comments:
    "I am chair of a community project set up to create community-owned clean energy for the benefit of the community. We are convinced that wind power is a vital bridge, enabling us to act now to reduce carbon emissions with suitable urgency, but when new tidal power comes online in about 20 years, the wind turbines can be recycled and the land returned to nature. So we have applied for a small community-owned turbine. Please support it at Cornwall Council’s planning portal: http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=15927 – Please reference ‘PA13/06802 – Endurance turbine community owned’.
