I find your comments on the fears surrounding wind energy are fair. I think that your caveat of making sure that they are placed far enough away from human population and migratory bird pathways is critical though. Do you feel that government is doing "due diligence" in researching what these limits should be (ie. how close is too close?). My concern is that governments, in an effort to generate some good PR, are racing to develop without critically assessing the possible disadvantages. This could be devastating to our wildlife and to the quality of life of the people in proximity to the wind farms. I would love to see some proof that these concerns are being considered. And then we can gladly move toward cleaner energy solutions!
