  •  upstate NY (8+ / 0-)

    I also live in upstate NY where people are fighting wind farms.

    There's a wind farm near where I grew up in upstate NY.  My parents bragged about it when it went in, and pointed it out to visitors.

    Oh wait, check this out:

    Officials in the nearby town of Madison, which became the site of New York's first wind farm in 2000, say the presence of seven giant windmills has been beneficial.

    Bonnie Stone, who, with her husband, Carl, leased 120 acres of their Madison dairy farm to PG&E National Energy Group for 15 years, can see and hear the turbines from her front yard but says the noise doesn't bother her. "They look like a piece of art," says Stone, who, when she received a call from a concerned Cherry Valley resident, told him to come and see how good a neighbor a wind farm can be. "Get your doubters on a bus, and bring them out here to let them see for themselves. They're beautiful."

    I wouldn't mind living near a windfarm.  I agree with Bonnie Stone: they're beautiful.  Majestic, even.
