We don't have them here in Indiana where we live yet, but I've heard the Wind Turbines do a great job.

The hills around our neighbourhood have turbines on them.

Kristina C, Good news for you. There has been many recent advances in blade design, to which they are addressing the NOISE FACTOR. Yes, it can be quite LOUD. Sorry about that.

I will bore you with the details, oh, what the hell, it lies in an area of design somewhat like the air brake of an aircraft. Angle and pitch also come into play. Sleep well, hope and discovery is on its way.

Wind turbines are a great way of 'natural' energy - but they are very very loud, even when they are barely moving you can hear them.
I find the sound of wind calming - let's hope they will as well.

I agree. Turbines are better than the alternative.

Past member, Please stop the madness, you have a computer, USE IT.

Patio windows, Car wind screens, cats, cats, did I mention CATS, human with guns, humans with gunny sacks, KILL more birds in one day than turbines kill in a year, plus.

So STOP THE MADNESS, educate yourself, stop looking for aliens in your trousers, unless they are Klinons.

Search before you speak. Governmental oversight is a must and as far as I know, it is in place any where a wind turbine field is planned.

Yes, the subject of bird migration must be addressed, but before the field is erected, not after.
