“Industrial wind power is more than view issue”  

Aesthetics is indeed an important issue, as Fred LeBrun wrote in his balanced assessment of the wind farm debate in the Adirondacks (“Wind farm plan splits activists,” April 24). Opposition to industrial wind power, however, is about more than just the view.

Just as advocates shape their aesthetics by considering the project’s benefits, so do opponents. When supporters of the Gore Mountain and other projects argue the necessity of reducing emissions of carbon and toxins, opponents point out that giant wind facilities do not in fact reduce such emissions.

Industrial wind turbines are all the more ugly because they are practically useless: an expensive intrusive boondoggle.
