    What are the reasons that people are using for complaining about wind farms on the Great Lakes? Is it the view, like Donald Trump complained about from his golf course in Scotland?

      Hi Mike – I’m the editor who brought this story in. You can check out this website to see some of the reasons people oppose what they call “industrial wind power”: http://www.na-paw.org/. Their main reasons are concern for the environment and the view. Thanks for writing! Alisa Barba

        The ‘North Americans – Platform Against Wind Power’ site is interesting, but full of partial truths. I do not have the time to discredit everything that is written there, but in general, wind farms do less environmental damage than a coal mine and a coal generation station. Years ago wind was more expensive than coal and natural gas, but that has been changing, and now a new wind farm with backup is cheaper than a new coal plant, with backup.
