And never harm any birds.
You could put 50 of them on the roof of a downtown building, and no one would even know they were there.
You could put 10 of them on those very tall FREEWAY LIGHTS, and they could provide most of their own electricity.
You could put at least 4 of them on the sides of every highway overpass, and they would mostly be powered by the rush of wind from passing vehicles.
Shoot the liberals.
