This argument makes local people cry and laugh at the same time. Becquse it is so misunderstood. They don’t want roads and marches to walk in quees. They want the opposite, to walk in silent wild nature and experience un-industrialised wild nature. People loose trust in wind industry that does not include and respect the values and feelings of local populations.  The need for energy is in another country, Germany, Switzerland, and Scotland. Norway has no need for the energy, because of enough waterpower electricity. Why should needs in other countries destroy wild beautiful nature with habitats of genetic diversity in Norway?
