I find it amusing people will drive for miles to look at windmills and wax lyrical about the romantic gentle swish as they grind flour, or pump water. The dutch sell thousands of pictures of them.
Then stick a generator on them and make the blades out of GRP and stop calling them sails and it flicks a switch in some peoples head and they scream doom and gloom and wax on this time about the unconfirmed number of winged creatures that meet their demise entangled in the thrashing blades of these machines from hell.
I don't think people in rural areas and countries where a wind turbine is their only source of power will be jumping on the turbine bashing band wagon.
As post script how many birds are killed in oil spills, or is that acceptable collateral damage.
