Alternative power from wind turbines 2x taller than Statue of Liberty, in TX. United States has the 2nd largest wind power market in the world. Not as cost efficient as fuel, yet. Brings problems with wildlife casualties, as the turbine blades get larger.

William, completely agree. I think we MUST use natural sources of power IF we want to continue our lifestyle. You have a good point about the noise. Some kind of sound that birds would hear that would warn them to keep a distance.
