Windmills and their consequences

Windmills have their place.... It's easy to call people who resist these subsidy garnering items NIMBYs - but look at the video and ... 
honestly - would you like your environment filled like that?

Bear in mind that each and every one of these items needs a fossil / nuclear fuelled backup generator running constantly - in case the wind stops. The electricity produced is actually more damaging to the environment than having a highly optimised gas turbine running at it's optimum efficiency...

Not a blot on the landscape and a folly of epic proportions?
