NIMBY. I can't believe he wrote it in his post even. I wonder, if as a realtor, he has ever sold bare ground to grow houses on.
Don't get me wrong, I think turbines are an area specific item and don't want one in my backyard but in the pasture away from everything is fine and dandy with me.
I agree that wind turbines are the best in North Dakota, but don't call it crap ground. We have the most crop diversity in the country and provide plenty to the ag community. Just cause we can't raise the corn and beans like you doesn't mean your any better. Next time think before you rash out at others.
Nuclear is a bad joke. Investors won't build one unless the government guarantees their investment 100%! Here in SE MN they're multiplying in a hurry. I understand NIMBY, but I know we need the electricity and I have a conscience when it comes to global climate change, so I've signed up my land.
