Quote: "In 2004, David Keith of the University of Calgary and his
colleagues estimated the drag from wind farms if they covered 10
percent of the Earth's land surface. They concluded that global
cooling would occur in polar regions and global warming would result
in temperate regions such as North America at about 30 degrees North
latitude."

I wonder if turbines at the leeward side of very large
"farms" (complexes is a better word) are affected by ones up front?
They are usually intercepting wind at the same elevation. The ability
to steer storms seems at least probable. We've only seen these
eyesores on a relatively sparse scale so far. They are a classic case
of fixing one problem by engineering a different one. The _scale_ of
human activity should be questioned more than anything.

If wind farms cover even 1% of the land surface, a lot of great
scenery will be trashed. Why are "Greens" so passive about that
growing blight? These are industrial landscapes, not ecological boons.
Their intermittent carbon-free power has a steep aesthetic price tag.
There must be a better way, like well-controlled nuclear power that
uses far less acreage.

The wisest way to curb energy demand is to limit the total human
population size, so we aren't always chasing growth. It will be a sign
of progress when a President finally brings that up in a campaign and
voters understand that he wants to _reduce_ the pressure for genocide,
not condone it.

Pillock.

The researchers "acknowledged the hypothetical wind farm was far larger than
anything humans are likely to build,"

Also in 2004, David Keith of the University of Calgary and his colleagues
estimated the drag from wind farms if they covered 10 percent of the Earth's
land surface.

10% get a ****ing grip.

Default I Told You All This

Now the proof is coming to the forefront. These machine are extremely
dangerous and pose life threatening dangers. These machine of world wide
destruction disrupt the climate and will end up killing millions due to the
effects of weather change. Be prepared for fridged temperatures never before
seen my mankind. The death toll as the cold blast hits in December will be
on a scale never before seen. You all better get ready. It's almost here.
