  • Yes they give us cheap energy.

    Wind turbines are expensive to construct and cost a little to maintain but if you can get past the upfront cost then you will benefit. There will always be wind and these turbines are just the beginning of a world where all we use is resource-free energy. Fuel and water may run low but wind is forever.

  • Yes, I find them cleaner sources of energy.

    Of course I believe wind turbines make excellent sources of energy. In this time of growing pollution we need cleaner energy sources and wind turbines give you just that. Sure, there are some wind turbines that actually hurt the environment but that's only if the turbines need a lot of wind to run them. If you have a turbine on your property you can actually be paid! People say that the turbines cause seizures in animals, but I have wind turbines on my property and not a single one of my animals have had a seizure.

  • All alternative forms of energy should be explored

    With out amazing use of energy and the rapid expansion of our population, we need as much help producing energy as possible. We need to explore all options and in order to create as much clean energy as possible. It might not be cost effective right now, but we should be investing in it.

  • Yes, they are

    They are a clean source of electricity, not releasing any harmful emission or waste. Some say it costs too much to maintain them at the moment, but we have to look at the long term benefits they will have; harnessing the wind will one day be what powers most things in the future, along with other forms of renewable energies. They are also becoming more advanced and can generate a lot of electricity from something renewable.

  • Yes they are.

    The best part about using wind turbines as a form of energy is that they use what is already around us all of the time, and that is wind! Wind will happen whether or not we decide to use it, so I say we use the turbines to make energy.

  • The visual blight keeps growing and is increasingly troublesome.

    Putting huge towers all over rural and wild landscapes is not an acceptable trade-off for many people (and animals). Quality of life matters, not just power generation. People don't seem to understand the scale of these machines and future plans for expansion. According to a 2009 Stanford study, we'd need close to 4 million large wind turbines, globally, to offset fossil fuels in a meaningful way. Landscapes and seascapes are already being ruined with just a fraction of that goal. There's as much denial about wind power impacts as there is about global warming.

    Widespread talk of "careful siting" has been proven impractical with a limited amount of space and constant protests over new projects. You can't carefully site structures that large. They loom over everything and rarely get installed in urban areas where they'd contrast less with their surroundings.

  • Visual blight is an environmental problem, not a cure.

    This goes well beyond economic issues. Putting huge towers all over rural and wild landscapes is not an acceptable trade-off for many people (and animals) to suffer with. Quality of life matters, not just power generation. People don't seem to understand the scale of these machines and future plans for expansion.

  • Maybe with some serious improvement?

    Unfortunately... right now wind turbines aren't really worth the cost of erecting and maintaining them. We have a few in my area and they might be scrapped because of the outrageous cost of repair... not to mention the frequency of repairs/major maintenance.
    If at some point they become cost effective, that would be great
