What price nature?

Tuesday, September 10, was a sparkling day of wonderful visibility and I was lucky to be on Lundy.
Views extended from Pembrokeshire to Cornwall, the unblemished landscape and seascapes were inspirational.
And while at this north light, I thought about the proposed Atlantic Array. How can we even contemplate disfiguring our natural beauty?
Future generations will never again be able to enjoy the unspoiled scene that I enjoyed on that day.
It is all the more upsetting to read the attitude of some council members discussing the planning response. It seems that if the economic benefits can be guaranteed there will be little resistance from our councils. What price do they put on our natural heritage? Is there anything they would not sell for monetary gain?
