Windmills in St. Lucie shouldn't be so welcomed  

It’s easy to understand the appeal of “free electricity” from the wind, but take it from someone who has experienced it up close and personal, it’s not as it appears.

I lived in Northern California during the early 1980s when the first of the wind “farms” were being built at Altimont Pass and in the Sacramento River delta area. A few giant windmills are a novelty; hundreds of them are a significant sight and sound polluter.

The noise in particular is nerve-wracking and can lead to mental illness.

A single nuclear power plant can create more electricity at less cost that windmills covering the state of Florida.

This is just a token gesture to the eco-Nazis by Florida Power & Light to look politically correct.

I hope we don’t see this suggested for Martin County.
