The pure irony of this heading is that industrial wind should be a tough sell, E S P E C I A L L Y for environmentalists.

In addition ,those who believe that the serious negative impacts associated with industrial scale turbines are counter balanced by the fact that wind produces less co2 emissions than coal fired power plants, which they suggest can be replaced by wind turbines, again are badly misinformed and are guilty of faulty disingenuous blind faith in a technology touted by the industry and political advocates/lobbyists.

True environmentalists should set aside their zeal for a real honest solution to the climate issue and recognize the limitations and downsides to this technology that is being sold to a gullible world citizenry.
