They are a site to see out there (not much else to see actually). My nephew said he saw one north of San Antonio the other day—off of 281.
My imagination can kick into hyper drive and I can visualize Indians on the mesas and wagons along the canyons. These wing mills are spooky. They look like from a distance something waving it’s arms’)
Not hardly, you have to go farther west towards El Paso where you'll see mesa tops covered in the damned turbines. PC power is not the answer, DRILL HERE, DRILL NOW is the only way to boost supplies and send our enemy a message of self-reliance and a threat to vaporize them if need be.
What is funny, as the post points out, is the birds whacked by the rotors and don't kid yourself, there are lots of them. There are some good reliable studies done on numbers, they tried hiding that at first but truth always surfaces.
Nevertheless, I couldn't care less, seems the enviros pick and choose their standards with the shifting winds (pun intended), they'll gleefully send someone to jail for killing some protected bird but their precious wind generators can whack them by the thousands (cumulatively speaking) and nary a word. Amazing.
No oil field of any size has killed more wildlife than these monsters. I used to patrol those oil patches for that very thing from the 70s through the 80s in S. Texas. The Drillers were some darn decent, hard working folks, I'm for giving them more work! Whiners move aside!
