Although I applaud Mr. Hendershot’s analysis of the effects of wind turbines on our environment, he misses a major point.
Despite the spurious (not his) assertions that wind mills are “pretty,” (no doubt promulgated by less than … let it go with that), has anyone considered the noise?
Even forgetting the scars to the terrain, you cannot displace the amount of air needed to generate electricity without the constant, 24-a-day humping of “whump, whump, whumping,” that would accompany it.
No less the destruction of all available ridge tops, must we also deal with never-ending “whumping” in the silence we (forsaking developers who live somewhere else) enjoy?
Will outlaw commercial interests never cease exploiting the place we live?
