While it is an obvious observation that we would oppose wind farming because of the slaughter of birds and chiropterans, the greater issue involves the devastating ecological and economic consequences these schemes inflict upon everything else, both living and dead.
If anyone thinks the wholesale industrialization of enormous amounts of wild open spaces will benefit the environment, then I would suggest their aesthetic is twisted and toxic. If these same proponents think these windy schemes are economically feasible, then it is obvious they know little of economics or the physics of energy generation and transmission.
Australians have been the victims of eco-zealots inflicting their faith-based beliefs upon a gullible public. The public is now waking up as they face the highest electricity prices in the world with little or no reliability. Will Coloradoans and Americans learn from this lesson down-under?
Or will we succumb to the religious eco-zealotry infecting the masses who know little about ecology or economics, and whose intellectual immune systems are not prepared for the onslaught?
