Wind energy or hot air?  

Wealthy pseudo-environmentalists, busily producing their own trash quota while jetting from coast to coast, get all misty-eyed imagining flyover country paved with wind farms providing them energy. Why are these ill-conceived notions so trendy?

Wind farms are death traps for migrating birds. They’re costly to maintain. They produce noise pollution as constant and debilitating as truck-choked freeways. They look creepy on empty land, like those alien death-machines in War of the Worlds. They’re as big an eyesore as a field of oil derricks and one-tenth as productive.

Clean, available, less obtrusive and cheaper energy alternatives will progress beyond Dutch windmill technology.
