Windfarms discussion on the Guardian's Comment is Free

The Guardian recently kicked off a discussion on the Comment is Free website with the following:

So, are windfarms an eyesore or an environmental boon? And would you be happy to have one on your doorstep? [More/take part in the debate on Comment is Free]
