A pretty good pro and con article on the buildout of wind "farms" in the US and some of the problems they have caused. At least we are getting a sort of fair and balanced report.
The only important paragraph in this whole article is this:
" Today, more than 1,000 exist. Much of the growth has been funded by American taxpayers. BILLIONS of dollars in state and federal incentives have made wind farms so profitable that companies are racing to develop them before the handouts disappear." That word in caps should be TRILLIONS. These boondoggles are NOT profitable and do NOT provide meaningful reliable energy without being backed up by baseload (gas, nuclear, coal or hydro) for when the wind does not blow.
Warren Buffett said it best when he said "For example, on wind energy, we get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That's the only reason to build them. They don't make sense without the tax credit."
