Wind power not looking as ‘green’ 

Credit:  The Inter-Mountain, theintermountain.com 2 January 2012 ~~

“Green” depends greatly on your point of view in terms of energy sources. As they tout wind power as the answer to all America’s energy needs, President Barack Obama and other liberals ignore that.

Here in West Virginia, many residents of the Potomac Highlands worry wind turbine towers will drive away the region’s economic lifeblood – tourism.

In Mineral County, 75 people signed a petition asking that a wind farm near them be shut down between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. – so they can sleep without enduring the noise.

And the American Bird Conservancy reports at least 440,000 birds die each year in collisions with spinning wind turbine blades. That will increase to a million within a few years, the conservancy predicts.

Wind power isn’t looking as green as it once did to many Americans. But they’re not in Obama’s political backyard, so to speak, so he simply doesn’t care.
