Wind Farms Kill Whales

By James Delingpole, UK Telegraph, March 16th, 2011 [here]

So wind farms don’t just despoil countryside, frighten horses, chop up birds, spontaneously combust, drive down property prices, madden those who live nearby with their subsonic humming, drive up electricity prices, promote rentseeking, make rich landowners richer (and everyone else poorer), ruin views, buy more electric sports cars for that dreadful Dale Vince character, require rare earth minerals which cause enormous environmental damage, destroy 3.7 real jobs for every fake “green” job they “create”, blight neighbourhoods, kill off tourism and ruin lives, but they also

Following a complaint from the author of the paper, the Telgraph has withdrawn the article and apologized.

You can’t live without it.
