It's bad enough that these bird killing, heavily subsidized industrial machines are taking farm lands out of production, causing people to have to abandon their homes because of noise, but to dispoil mountaintops and tourist attractions -- for what? Wind is 25 - 30%efficient (most likely less)- if no subsidy it would not be cost efficient. As a long standing environmentalist I can not support the environmental community that supports these things in places they don't belong. They have been conned!
I don't care if the government wants to handout my taxpayer money to foreign companies and to landowners, but when besides passing out the money we lose our landscape, homes, beauty and birds/bats it just makes me cry!
