And so the renewable energy debate rumbles on. Is it just me or are we missing something?
The Domesday Book of 1086 recorded 5,624 watermills in England south of the Trent.
By the time of the industrial revolution there were many more.
It strikes me that this country's rivers could supply all the energy we require, cheaply and effectively. Why, then do we worry and chatter about expensive, unsightly and inefficient wind farms?
Until the blinkers come off we will never move forwards.
