energy Windfarms - eyesore or beautiful landscape features?

Country Life readers nominated the worst blots on the British landscape to include wind farms, power stations, electricity pylons and motorways. However, Germaine Greer argues that such views are irrational, and often hypocritical. In defence of wind farms, Germaine points out that the same smock and tower mills that are now such beautiful landscape features were once seen as grotesque clattering and creaking machines by objectors. She does however wonder why turbines are painted white - as if they are kin to washing machines and fridges.
