The Guardian recently kicked off a discussion on the Comment is Free website with the following:
Lewis, the northernmost Hebridean island, could soon host the world's biggest windfarm, providing up to a quarter of Britain's energy needs and giving a huge boost to the local economy. But the community is split, with some residents saying the installation of hundreds of wind turbines would ruin the island's natural beauty and destroy their way of life.The Wilderness Foundation is for sustainable energy but against the placing of windfarms in environmentally sensitive areas.
