It has 1,500 followers and deserves a million five. Environmentalists Against Wind Turbines (EAWP) is a great resource for national and international developments regarding the fits and perils of industrial wind turbines. This site offers a few original commentary posts but is mostly publication news that is of great service to the pro-landscape, pro-energy, pro-free-market energy community.
Kudos to Christine Morabito for her administration of the site. Thank the members for posting news updates.

A handful of players control the wind industry and the easy money attracts some bad actors. The only thing green about the wind industry is the money changing hands. Birds and bats are being slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands. Offshore wind threatens marine life and the fragile ecosystem they live in. That’s not green.
Much more could be added such as how this dilute, intermittent energy source destabilizes the grid and causes blackouts and conservation “alerts.” Texas avoided further blackouts due to a mild summer; California is on edge as I write.
Posts at EAWP in the last month have come from members of these groups:
Many other opposition groups are listed at National Wind Watch. They are having an impact. “Since 2015,” noted Robert Bryce, “about 300 government entities from Vermont to Hawaii have rejected or restricted wind projects.”
Given that industrial wind is an industry created on the back of taxpayers and special government favor otherwise, landowners and the landscape should be in the mix against crony developers. They should win too–waste and blight should not be renewable.
