A plan that could bring at least 100 wind turbines to one of two central South Dakota locations has commissioners in several Mitchellarea counties considering the possibility of further wind energy development in the region.

Has anyone considered the aesthetic question? I viewed some wind turbines near Chamberlain. They are monstrously ugly and do not enhance or blend in with the landscape. Consider the old windmills, the many unique designs and construction elements. Is there another design that could achieve the same results, but be much more in keeping with landscape, much more interesting visually, perhaps even beautiful. Did the wind turbine designers consider these factors? I would not want even one wind turbine in my landscape. People who vote on these farms, I propose, would not want them in their back yards.

If you think wind turbines look ugly, just visit Kentucky and look at the beautiful "mountain top removal" strip mines.

Wind turbines can be installed on properties, on boats, or caravans. Getting a wind turbine depends entirely on the amount of wind generated in your area. Recommend Home Wind Energy,Small Wind Power Generator,Residential Wind Turbine Manufacturers & Suppliers:www.allwindturbine.c om

Wind sucks. Coal sucks. Nuclear sucks. Solar sucks. The only thing that makes sense is NEWclear! By that I mean a new kind of nuclear, a leaner, cleaner, greener newclear. Liquid Fluoride Thorium Recyclers are the way to go.
