As anyone with eyes and ears knows, wind projects have greatly expanded since Obama unleashed the PTC, which keeps getting extended in a frenzy to build these inefficient eyesores. They’re treated as eco-saviors by people who barely study their impacts and ignore their poor ERoI (built with fossil fuels at every step).

It’s taken too long for major environmental groups (e.g. The Nature Conservancy) to treat energy sprawl as a serious issue, but many still claim these monster projects can be “carefully sited” even though by necessity they’re built where the best wind is. It’s like saying you can hide skyscrapers and their lights just around the next corner.

Nuclear power looks like the best way to get energy from a much smaller area, and people should stop fearing it based on limited knowledge.
