I'm glad to know that I'm not alone in my opinion of "wind turbines"

Across the pond, up in Scotland- they have a bit of objection to the ugly things too.

The British government wants to cover the moors with 100 meter (over 300') tall wind turbines. The Scots have a viable tourist industry going, but that'll go out the window if regular tourists have to look at the ugly things. But on the bright side:
Chris Tomlinson, the head of onshore wind for the British Wind Energy Association, the main industry group, argues that the protesters are wrong about tourism and that, if anything, the Whinash scheme will increase the number of visitors.

Visitor centres at two wind farms, at Scroby Sands near Great Yarmouth and Swaffham in Norfolk, have attracted 5,000 visitors a month.

Yep, put a visitors center at each one, and the same 5,000 people will be diluted by that much.
Wind power won't, in the near future come anywhere close to making up in power for the ugly of it's self.

I also predict thsat these same "Green Activists" will have those windmills shut down because of the bird killings that's fixing to happen.

Remember, you heard it here first.
(I almost got done without mentioning the ugly things greeting you when you drive into Cali)
