Pollution the same however it is caused
THE Prime Minister says wind turbines are an eyesore, noisy, a blight on the landscape and probably bad for your health.
Each to their own Tony: personally, all of the above to me applies more to conventional fossil fuel power stations that belch out visible pollution into the atmosphere day and night, in addition to light pollution into the night sky and all the unseen pollution such as of the adjacent waterways and chemical leakage.
And don’t get me started on nuclear power stations: there is a whole lot more to add to these monstrosities.
So, I wonder what faults all the other types of renewable energy processes have apart from being labelled inadequate.
Is this the PM talking or is it the fossil fuel industry?
Oh, that’s right: renewables mostly mean free energy.
That’s the problem. Brad Capes, Coolbellup.
This trade is cruel and we all know it, but some don't want to face it. We see the horrific suffering on television, but even this is not enough to end this disgraceful, cruel trade.
We do not have the right to say we have the "best" welfare regulations in the world while we sit by and watch this shocking cruelty unfold before us year after year.
These are animals that suffer overcrowding, lack of food, heat stress, pain and disease as well as death while they are being transported overseas.
If this were happening in Australia the people perpetrating it would be charged – animal cruelty
