To everyone who gave on Giving Tuesday!
Wind Watch still needs help, though. If you did not already, please contribute now. Every dollar (and euro, yuan, pound, krone, zloty, ruble, rupee, shekel, etc.) helps to keep us on line and independent.

The nearest wind turbine is less than 2km from her bedroom.
“It can be quite loud, like a constant traffic sound when the wind direction is right. Over time it gets to you. Sometimes it’s days and weeks of constant noise that you just wish went away.”
