A few sites I've stumbled across recently....
NoTricksZone: "Acoustic Torture” …Austrian Chamber Of Physicians Warns Of Health Hazards From Large-Size Wind Turbines"Once dismissed as something merely imagined by people close to industrial wind turbines, health disorders caused by infrasound are emerging as being very real."
Martin A Yes, when I was living in Derby there was an infamouse landfill gas explosion which destroyed a house, fortunately with no casualties.
Loscoe Landfill Explosion
There have been others around the world.
Landfill gas management is a nice little earner...
"power stations are subject to same pollution limits under EU IED, whether they burn coal, gas or wood."
Except that only the wood-burning ones get the subsidies, because of their CO2 'neutrality'.
The only difference between wood and coal is the timescale.

Fascinating! They know for certain Fairbourne will be inundated.
I wonder if Edward I had similar fears 730 years ago when he built a castle 12 miles up the coast at Harlech.
".....The sea originally came much closer to Harlech than in modern times, and a water-gate and a long flight of steps leads down from the castle to the former shore, which allowed the castle to be resupplied by sea during sieges....."
Nowadays Harlech Castle is about 1km inland from the sea with Royal St David's Golf Club in-between.

Just gotta love this in today's DT:

Vernon: There is only so much that can be stored. I think it is flared for safety reasons and also as burning it gets rid of some of the nasty smells.
Philip B: if its a frequent occurrence I would have thought it was worth capturing. Even the gas from old landfill sites is put to some use. If its not significant why not just vent it?.
