This outcry from left wing environmentalists against wind power is consistent with my view of most of the environmental movement. Their true interest is not in saving the environment or cleaning up pollution. The reason why the greens have been advocating wind power is that they knew it was not a realistic alternative to conventional energy sources. Their real goal is to limit the advance of technology, and I would argue civilization, by stifling the use of energy, regardless of the source. Now that it is looking like, with enough subsidies, wind might actually be used to generate a noticeable amount of energy, they must oppose that also. This also explains why the greens oppose nuclear, the cleanest of all. Look for eventual opposition to solar, hybrid cars, etc.
