BBC NEWS | Politics | Huge expansion for wind turbines
There could be more than two offshore wind turbines per mile of UK coastline under plans being set out by ministers.

Business Secretary John Hutton says he wants to open up British seas to allow enough new turbines - up to 7,000 - to power all UK homes by the year 2020.

He acknowledged "it is going to change our coastline", but said the issue of climate change was "not going away".

The thrust of the idea was backed by Tory Alan Duncan: "We're an island nation. There's a lot of wind around."

Of course it's all a secret plot!  The two turbines per mile are really part of an anti-submarine defense system!

As well as that - why not put nets between the turbines and create one giant Fish farm all around Britain's coast!

The daily mail is probably going to ask for a fence between them to keep the asylum seekers out.
