I have written before that I think the benefits of wind farming -- producing nearly pollution-free domestic energy such as electricity from windmills -- is in general a laudable effort.
The people who get in the way, often, would sacrifice these attractive benefits to protect the view out their back window or front door -- be it a view of Nantucket Sound off Cape Cod (see this article and also this article, as well as this missive in past postings on NIMBY Monitor) or a view of the wilds and lakes of upstate New York. And they are wealthy enough or powerful enough to make noise and get heard. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, but meanwhile a clean way to produce energy to turn the axle gets shorted.
Now it's time for the view protectionists on Cape Cod to meet their counterparts in upstate New York.
