Wind and NIMBY

An interesting post on Boing Boing about the politics of getting wind turbines constructed. The comment thread is also (a little less) interesting, but basically the response to most of the comments is "these are precisely the issues that would be worked out with more dialogue and planning, which is what the original poster is advocating."

On the aesthetic argument, I don't think they are particularly attractive or ugly, but when you see a field of them all rotating at the same time, there is definitely something mesmerizing and fascinating about them. The more important issue, however, is how they look compared to the alternatives.
