Everywhere I play golf usually has a windmill.  Doesn't ruin my view.

fluffy2097: They would spoil the view for golfers?


It's not just the view.  Those things are a real obstacle to play:

WhoopAssWayne: Ted Kennedy? John Kerry? You mean those blowhards?

Yeah, fark Teddy Kennedy and his viewshed. I hope they put a bronze plaque with his name on the first turbine that Cape Wind erects.

We all know that windmills have propellers, and propellers move things - if we build too many of them, we might blow the entire planet out of its precise orbit, and we would either freeze or burn up.

True story.

olddinosaur: They've got about 200 of those things 30 miles north of my home, and there are two things I cannot learn:

1. How much does it cost to erect each windmill?

2. How much electricity does each windmill make in a typical year?


Every month I get a credit on my bill from the region's excess wind power.

rhondajeremy: I don't have a problem with them blocking the view. I do have a problem with the amount of wildlife that is killed by those turbines (birds, bats, etc).

It's estimated over 57 million birds are killed each year by automobiles. If saving the birds is really such a concern why has that been ignored?

Came to say this. Over 1 billion birds are killed each year in the US alone by flying into glass windows. Alternatively, the highest estimates out there for windmill mortality are around 20 thousand. Add in the numbers killed by automobiles and by cats (another 1-3 billion), and the number killed by windmills is a drop in the bucket that has turned into anti-windfarm propaganda. If saving birds is your goal, then stop driving, kill your cats, and start working for a demolition crew.

rhondajeremy: I don't have a problem with them blocking the view. I do have a problem with the amount of wildlife that is killed by those turbines (birds, bats, etc). When they solve that issue, I'll endorse them way more.

Don't believe the propaganda. How many birds did you kill on the way to work with your car? Trust me...bats aren't threatened.

I love how every time I attend a development meeting for a wind farm and there is always the obligitory yokel...with the obligitory statement....

"DOZE BIG FANS....DEY KILL ALL DER BIRDS....DOZE BIG FANS GAVE MY COUSIN CROSSED EYES" up...learn...ask questions...then, and only then can you share your unintelligence.

I'm Norweigian, so had a bit of difficulty with the accent when reading them to my kids. Trying to read a scottish accent while sounding like the swedish chef is a bizarre experience.
