The Case Developing against Wind Farms

In the June 13, 2012, edition of the Austin American-Statesman, there was a letter to the editor, “Eyesore Turbines,” that just by its title suggests that wind farms are causing problems.

In “Wind turbines as yet unsuitable as electricity providers,” an article by C. le Pair, F. Udo and K de Groot in Europhysics News, it is questioned whether wind turbines have been shown to be effective for their intended use.
