We need to move away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible, but that doesn't mean we need to deny that every alternative also has its costs and its environmental impacts. To deny that wind power has negative impacts is no different than denying that it has positive impacts. We simply can't afford to stick our heads in the sand and pretend that any technology is zero impact or that serious choices will need to be made. #climatechanged #cleanenergy
