Hi all,

  Maybe this is old hat, but if not it is definitely worth a look. Go to:

  These windfarms are much more bird-friendly (with no rotor blades) and are 
apparently silent. They are quite aesthetically pleasing too (I think). 
Probably the main shortcoming is that they cannot meet the energy demands to 
feed the grid, but the concept looks like a potential way forward within this 
partially bird-related debate. Perhaps we will see these on the rooves of 
houses to generate energy on a micro-scale?
