    Without a mercy of doubt, this is being said "tongue-in-cheek".
    Or, with a droplet or two of sarcasm.

Since climate change is a fraud, wind turbines are totally unnecessary.
    Wind turbines do not emit cancer causing smoke. Would you rather live next to a coal generating plant or a wind turbine?

    Wind turbine apparently make a noise that effects animals.

    the funny thing is, people who say wind power is unreliable, 'cause the wind stops blowing, don;t take into consideration that when the flow of coal stops, it won't start up again like the wind will, for a reliable source of power, i think a combination of wind, solar and hydro-electric power would see to all our needs, without the environmental trouble that comes with coal.

    In my city, we have power outages all of the time...brownouts, especially during the summer months when demand is high. I'd think it would be a selling point to have a consistent, cheap supply of electricity. I love my solar water heater.

    If we can ask our young men to die for securing the world's free access to oil in the Middle East, we can certainly tell homeowners to piss off when they object to these rather cool looking turbines being erected within their view. I mean, have some perspective, people.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    In nearby Dunkirk, NY the coal fired generatig plant emits only steam from the stacks because of the scrubbers that have been installed.

    We need to go with an "all the above" policy. We need to continue agressively with coal, oil, and nuclear until wind, solar have been developed enough ( if ever) to step in.

    WIND IS UNRELIABLE. The supply of coal is enough to last for a long, long time.

    Solar water heatr is great. It is a totally different animal.

    If your problem with something your neighbor does with their property is how it impacts your view or your property value, either buy the view or suck it up.

    If your problem is safety considerations, then that may be a different matter.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
