“Spinning, post-industrial junk which generates nothing but bird kills.”

November 21, 2011

Don Surber has a nice little piece up on the 14,000 wind turbines abandoned across the US over the last three decades.  I have never been a proponent of wind as anything other than a local source of micro power.  Big Wind is too expensive relative to other sources – even more so now that there is a potential glut of natural gas available worldwide.  The Dutch, too, are abandoning their large scale wind projects, as they cannot survive without subsidies that are unsupportable in the current financial climate.
