I agree. The main feature of the skyline in my area (Nth. Tuggerah Lakes, Central Coast, NSW) are smoke stacks from coal burning power stations, which despite electrostatic precipitators, continually exude a plume of pollution. Having lived near wind turbines and birded around the turbine on Kooragang Is. Newcastle. I would rather have a wind turbine nearby anytime.

I have followed the worldwide debate on alternative, sustainable energy sources over the last couple of decades and have been constantly amazed at how so often, whenever an alternative energy project is proposed in a location, various organisations waving an environmentalist banner pops up in opposition to the project. It would be very interesting to do a bit of forensic accounting on their sources of funds, as in so many cases the project collapses and the status quo regns. And who are the beneficiaries? Not that I am making accusations, I think the facts would do that.
