However, if we look at the specifics of onshore wind and solar power, the things that really impact the countryside, the situation in England is drastically different.

Last year, onshore wind and solar generated 5.9 and 9.2 TWh respectively, out of a total generation of 254.7 TWh. In other words, only 5.9%.

Regardless of the cost in subsidies, which are huge, can anybody honestly say that such a tiny amount of energy is worth the environmental destruction?
