Wind Power Not so Clean or Green

Recommended Posts

coal is viable, it has value, wind isn't and does not.

Coal comes with a cost that wind doesn't come close to touching.

The difference is, coal is viable, it has value, wind isn't and does not. Not unless of course it's subsidized by the kind of politician people like you elect.

You are a little out of date.

as well as the natural beauty of the area in question.

I find wind turbines are much more beautiful than ugly nature. Wonderful symbol of progress.

If you feel any sense of responsibility to our planet, the only moral choice is to change your lifestyle to minimize your energy requirements. In real terms, that means that Canadians should leave this climate en masse and move much closer to the equator, where it does not take anywhere near as much energy to simply survive?

No. Minimizing your energy requirements means killing yourself. Anything less than dead requires energy to sustain.

It really is a question of aesthetics. In Southern Ontario, on the North of Lake Erie, we have a number of wind turbine farms. While art is in the eye of the beholder, so appears the aesthetic qualities of wind turbines. Some residents see them as ugly invaders of natural habitats while I am one of those who find them pleasant to the eye. I find them pleasing when driving in the area with their blades turning slowly in the wind on the horizon. I do have neighbors who see them as not unlike the alien invaders of "War of the Worlds".

I find them quite pleasing to the eye as well. I think they are beautiful additions to farmland which is already unnatural and not exactly visually pleasing. However, they are far less attractive when inserted into wild, unmarked landscapes.
