More Criticism of Wind Power

I have absorbed lots of criticism because I no longer support wind power.  Tom Fuller has come to the same conclusion.  We are wasting a lot of time, money and land on wind power. I fear that, by 2020, the Great Plains will be littered with rusting, broken down wind structures.

And, from the comments to Tom's article:
“Denmark itself has also already tried being a green-energy innovator; it led the world in embracing wind power. The results are hardly inspiring. Denmark’s wind industry is almost completely dependent on taxpayer subsidies, and Danes pay the highest electricity rates of any industrialised nation. Several studies suggest that claims that one-fifth of Denmark’s electricity demand is met by wind are an exaggeration, in part because much of the power is produced when there is no demand and must be sold to other countries.”
