The beauty of wind farms

David Suzuki has been the voice of doom on the Canadian environmental scene forever, and can make you feel guilty just for breathing and expelling CO2. Today he has written a strong and positive defense of wind farms in the face of the NIMBY reaction that is becoming common. He has one of the most beautiful backyards on the face of the planet and is welcoming windfarms to it.

He notes that we used to think belching smokestacks represented power and progress. Treehugger agrees that wind turbines are a whole lot prettier. ::New Scientist via ::Triple Pundit
