Windmill farms may be good for the scrub mountain sides of California, but the East Coasters don't seem to take kindly to the idea.
Last year, the Kennedys and other elites in Cape Cod shot at the idea of an Atlantic ocean windmill farm expansion. Now a New Jersy township is putting the brakes on a single windmill because it is too big at a total of 40' tall... smaller than the rotor blades on the windmill farms.
I agree with the township. Pretty soon the whole place would be filled with these rotating, strobe simulating, bird-bashing, noise-making eyesores.How about a township ordinance that requires solar panels on all of the roofs. These would generate electricity and heat water. Of course they might blind any pilots who happen to look down on a sunny day, but that's a minor risk. Hundreds of thousands of dead batteries headed to the landfill after a few years... but that's a minor inconvenience.
Why do there always have to be downsides?
