Wind Farms and Ecology

The Gulf oil spill is a disaster. There is no argument that birds, and sea life is dying or about to die in the pockets of crude oil floating around. There is little doubt that the oil will spread around the entire world, thereby, affecting the global community. We will rush to create new, more ecologically safe, forms of energy. What will they be? I drove across country this winter and saw a huge influx of wind farms. They are ugly, but a cleaner form of energy than oil. As I mentioned in my post of 7 June 2010 if it comes to a choice between my loves, and an ugly wind farm, the wind farm will win every time.

Even a wind farm has an ecological downside. They are noisy, and they have killed birds. Those who defend wind farms will argue that they kill fewer birds per year than house cats do. Therefore, the wind farm bird kill is insignificant. Will it still be insignificant when windmills densely populate the country stirring the air with those monstrously huge fan blades? At this time, the number of windmills is still small, but I can tell you from my personal observation that in the past three years the number has increased exponentially. How long will it be before this clean form of energy is the new demon?
