LAST week's Globe letters page contained two reminders of the power of wind.

First was Tom Lear's dramatic photo of the storms at New Brighton, an example of the kind of extreme weather we can expect more of, the more carbon we pump into the atmosphere through burning fossil fuels.

Second was the letter by UKIP’s Philip Griffiths, warning us about some plans to turn more of that wind power into electricity, through the construction of more offshore wind turbines.

It’s a matter of personal preference, of course, but given the choice, I’d rather see more of the latter than of the former.
