Survey: Are You NIMBY About Windfarms?

You can barely see the turbines in the photomontage of a Welsh offshore wind farm, (see 750 MW Offshore Wind Farm Approved for Wales) but the chairman of Save our Scenery, who campaigned against the wind farm, said he was "shattered" by the scheme's go-ahead.

One can think of few more benign power sources, yet wherever they are proposed the NIMBYs , even committed environmentalists like the Kennedys, go nuts. Why can't they, like David Suzuki, see the beauty of windfarms?
