Wind turbines are ruining state coastline

What are we doing to the state of Massachusetts? Is the goal to have a wind turbine everywhere we look, like some trophy case for liberals tripping over themselves to prove they are the best liberal ever?

Guess who leads the country with wind turbines within 5 miles of the coastline: Massachusetts (see http://eerscmap.usgs.gov/windfarm/ for a detailed USGS map of wind turbine locations nationwide). California doesn’t have one wind turbine within 50 miles of the coast, barring those 30 miles east of San Francisco. In fact, the whole West Coast only has four turbines near the coastline. They cherish their coast and don’t try to trash it.

Despite there being almost 300,000 wind turbines worldwide, the trajectory of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere not changed at all. The solution to reducing CO2 isn’t wind turbines on our beautiful coastline – that’s why the West Coast has not cluttered its shores with spinning blades!

Please stop the insanity of destroying Massachusetts with wind turbines!
