Griff Rhys Jones has attacked wind farms as the “hypocrisy of green tokenism” and warned that they will not fulfill 10 per cent of Britain's energy needs
The comedian, 58, suggested the “randomly deposited” turbines were being built with "hectic ambition" and were being "randomly deposited" across the country.
The Welsh-born television presenter urged people to use new planning laws to "rage against indiscriminate barbarity" and voice opposition to building in the countryside.
His comments were made in a column for the Radio Times, ahead of his new four-part series titled “Britain’s Lost Routes”, which airs from Thursday next week.
