    Especially since I see the wind turbines in the San Gorgonio Pass area in So. California frequently.

    Some people hate them because they object to them on aesthetic grounds as you noted in your diary, but I enjoy them.


    The onshore flow from the Pacific Ocean passing between two mountain masses into the desert provides the winds to turn the turbines and generate electricity, and the topography that results in the wind also provides a disproportionate number of rainbows for a desert area:
