I ran into these last week. I first saw them (there were five or six on the ridge), from mountain cover and did a double take.

I took the pics from the road later.

I hear ya, but strangely it does not bother me.

We need the energy and nothing is permanent.

I'm all for moving towards energy independence.

These particular artifacts don't effect the wild life or landscape; only our eyes and what's behind them. A less intrusive pollution as compared to litter and such.

You believe that if you want.  I'm not going to get into a debate.  My anti-turbine position on the ridgelines of New England is well documented here on UJ.

Sorry to upset you. I don't see a debate coming.

If you don't want a debate; Why poke the Possum with a stick? :D

We have hundreds of them around us and to be quite honest, I'm not really bothered by them at all, but then I can see the smoke stacks of 3 different Coal Fired Power Plants on the same backbone as the windmills. I know which I find to be more pleasant to look at......

John, there is a raging debate going on in some quarters concerning the very real effects of wind turbines on birds.

Ben,

I had not heard that. Thank you.

---------------------------

I wasn't meaning to poke anything, never mind a possum.

Just took a picture.

I can see where migratory bird could be effected, but our grouse stay low and smart.

:)

Still no poking.....jmcg

John,

I meant Uppie was pokin the possum!  :D

In some locations, there does seem to be a serious problem with Migratory birds, primarily birds of prey it seems. Other locations seem to have greatly reduced incidences to Migratory birds, so I would say that placement IS critical.

Windyhills has a great deal of info on this topic.

Isn't it something that nearly everything we do has some consequence or other.

We're about to see many more sprout out here on the Prairie I think.

I'd hate to see the result of a flock of Honkers flying through the field on a foggy morning.

But, I'd hate more to see the price of oil go back to $140 per bbl and see all our $$ go to those schmucks that don't like us very much.

A compromise i guess :unclesam:

Interesting sentence. I think I know who you mean, but then again, that could be a long list.

I know utopia is out there? I just can't seem to find it.

It will be a long slipery slope to reduce this carbon footprint we have for our existence. We are just starting the journey.

Expect mistakes, continue to look for solutions and don't be afraid to discuss problems. An open forum is why we fight for democracy. The sun, wind and water is at our disposal, we just need to learn how to best harness these resourses.

Best of the season to you all.
