You Know What I Hate about Wind Turbines? (Reader Comment)

 
what i hate about wind turbines

I absolutely loved this creative reader comment on a recent post I wrote about community wind power, so sharing it with you all (note: before it was a comment, it was a post on Neil Blanchard Designs’ blog):

You know what I hate about wind turbines?

The smokestacks.
The smoke.
The smog.
The mercury pollution.
The cooling towers.
The explosions.
The spills.
The limited fuel supply.
The other countries that control the wind.
The military cost to defend the wind.
The radiation.
The death of miners.
The fly ash.
The tailing ponds.
The methane gas releases.
The huge carbon footprint.
The increasing cost over time.
The inefficiency.
The pipelines.
The contaminated water.
The damage to our lungs and overall health done by wind turbines is horrendous.
The acid rain is nasty.
The waste.


 
I also hate the fact that they look like graceful wind sculptures, that let us see the wind. I hate the fact that they are much quieter than a highway.

Not really…

PUT THEM IN MY BACK YARD — PLEASE!
