|These are the Cairngorm Mountains in Scotland. Well, the first 2 are. The third one is what Scottish & Southern Energy's are planning to do to them by putting a series of exceptionally large pylons right through these mountains. They claim that this is necessary in order to meet the Governments Green energy requirements (the power going down the lines will be from a wind farm). I am all for Wind farms but the issue here is why can't they put the power lines underground and not ruin Scotland? Burying power lines is already standard practice in countries such as Germany, Canada, Norway and Belgium - so why not here? Because it is more expensive.
It's not just to do with the scenery, there are health risks associated with pylons too.
Even if you are not Scottish PLEASE go to Cairngorms Revolt Against Pylons and lend your support any way you see fit. Whether it's a donation or an email, any help is appreciated.
If you are Scottish, please do as much as you can.
