New Wind Turbine Design to Generate Power from Low Winds | Care2 Causes

I cannot speak for or against wind turbines in the USA, but in the UK they are an expensive mistake. The huge wind turbines which are taking over our limited landscape are ugly, noisy, inefficient, destroy the landscape, kill wildlife, damage human health, make life a living hell for those who live near them and put lots of money in energy companies’ and investors’ pockets, but will do little to address our energy needs. Scotland already produces MORE energy than it needs (we have hydro energy), The surplus is sold off so that people in the SE of England can continue to use excess amounts of electricity. I reserve judgement on the new design, but almost anything will be better than the giants which are striding across the landscape, creating havoc amongst the sea creatures who inhabit the seas around the UK and costing billions of taxpayers’ money.
