I Want As Many Wind Farms As Possible.

Texas, not the most environmentally friendly state, wants to build up to five hundred 400 foot tall windmills of the shore of Padre Island. Houston based Superior Renewable Energy will spend one to two BILLION dollars on the project. The wind farm could power 125,000 homes with 500 megawatts of power. (No I don't know how close to 1.21 jigawatts that is.)

One funny thing about the entire situation concerning wind farms is one group of environmentalists is far clean energy and another group is concerned about bird kill or ruining natural views. No one lives on that section of Padre Island so the view problem is eliminated. One group is concerned about migrating birds.

I feel sorry for any birds hit by a blade, but Darwin happened in that case. I want as much wind, water, and solar juice I we can get.
