Screw it... Lets just build some more coal plants for our power needs. Those are so much better. Or maybe some nuclear plants. The nocebo effect at work. I like to call these issues "non-participating landowner syndrome." Yes wind and solar plants have issues. But the alternatives are drastically worse. Although the anti-renewables crowd is almost always funded by oil and gas shills pushing climate change denier pseudo science.
I have one word for all "environmentalists": Really? You have been clamoring for renewable energy for decades. Now that you have significant steps taken to make this a reality, you are opposed to it. Windmills are 300 feet tall, they kill birds, and they are linked to cancer? Again: Really? You greens wanted this, and, now that the view out your window is ruined, you are against it. Your neighborhood cats probably kill as many birds as any windmill. They are linked to cancer from stray voltage? Do you have a radio or a TV? Did you write this article or comment on it with a PC, or mobile device? You better not use them. Even a low power mobile device takes significant energy to manufacture, never mind the stray voltage. The clothes you wear require energy to produce. So, unless you are ready to completely unplug yourselves from the power grid, and run around without clothing, you are all hypocrites. Shame on The Reader for publishing this tripe.
