Are Wind Turbines Elegant or Eyesores?


While looking at old buildings near Walkerton, Ontario with local heritage activists on the weekend, I mentioned that I rather liked seeing wind turbines on the horizon, 30 kilometers away on the shores of Lake Huron. They almost threw me out of the moving car. In Michigan, they are trying to ban wind turbines. Two years ago when I did this survey, there was a third choice- "it depends" but now it seems that opinions have polarized down to for or against.
