Wind Power has a Dark Side

Duh - we all knew that from first hand experience.

"Revealing the Dark Side of Wind Power: Surprising new research suggests harvesting cleaner energy may have serious consequences for the environment."

The conclusions may also apply to windsport as well. By using the energy of the wind, we could be be making global warming worse.

There is no off season.

That's why I like clean coal. When you cut off the top of a W. VA mountain to mine it, it let's the wind flow more easily, too. /s

Really, if we were to cut down some of there stupid trees it would help the wind flow so much, and we could just burn the trees for fuel.
