"Do you live here?"

Offshore wind farm stirs up a tempest. Lines are being drawn in the battle over a proposed windmill development to be built in Lake Ontario two kilometres out from the Scarborough Bluffs? Is this just another case of NIMBYism? Or are wind farms unreliable, dangerous to migratory birds, and a source of health problems for people who live near them?

wind farms, literally!

wind farms, literally! (via rw :) with plenty of wind sites in the UK and ireland being developed, and with companies like vestas churning out wind turbines and GE's recent acquisition of enron wind, is wind energy beginning to take hold in the US? after all, at 3-5 cents/kilowatt-hour it's certainly competitive. (4-12 cents/kWh is typical.)
