Wind power in Iowa

In my travels, I was quite interested in these huge windmill farms in the middle of quite a few Iowa fields. We have a few in Michigan heading towards Harbor Beach, but nothing like what I saw in Iowa. They were spread out enough to not interfere with each other, but there were so many that they seemed to go on as far as I could see. It was a pretty incredible sight.

What gets me though is all of the so-called environmentalists who don’t like the windmills claiming it’s going to mess with the climate or some garbage. So yeah, windmills are somehow bad for the environment. And birds. Can’t forget all the birds the windmills kill…like the blades move at supersonic speeds, right? Sorry, I’m not buying it. Anyway, I guess we should just stick with mining the hell out of coal and burning that instead, because that’s the better alternative along with gasoline.

Some people’s children… :-p
