    It's pretty funny that the oil companies, who have fugged up ALL our waters, are concerned with birds running into props and fishies not getting enough sleep because of noise. If those birds can't see a giant spinning white set of claws, they probably fly into someone's window. or eaten by a sloth. and fish need to stay awake because their life span is getting shorter.

    Solar energy is a proving technology the oil companies and politicians will not allow it to expand so they invest in projects like wind farms to help save each household 13 cents / month.

    A 1.5 Megawatt turbine can generate electricity for 322 homes a year. Multiply that by number of homes in the area serviced by the turbine and it equates to nothing. That's also assuming wind speeds of 27-57 mph.

    The answer is: George.

    Fortunately I speak bird language, so I'll have a talk with them about their vibrators' vibrations.

    I speak bird sign language




    regularly.

    they will be in the water. i havent really researched the science of it but i know they will block the wind some. and the may also block swells from coming

    same here. solar is definitely the way to go

    1. Turbine foundations can effect the sea bed
    2. Submarine cables can generate significant heat load which may alter the environment
    3. Turbines require emergency power to support auxiliary systems when the turbines go offline. The EPS is usually diesel gen-sets.

    Effect on surfing
    1. Turbines can act as a sea wall if built in close proximity thus reducing wind and waves.
    2. Sea bed can be altered depending on foundations or cable layout which would effect swell and currents.

    Do wind farms create enough clean energy that the above items are moot? Solar power is much more efficient and environmentally friendly.
    And all we would have to do is throw a couple solar panels on those stupid hotels that suck up all the energy in the first place. should i start a petition? i'm really going to be pissed if the turbines effect our waters and surf in any noticeable way.

    so you haven't researched but still somehow 'know'.

    then it'll always be glassy! Definitely want them off our coast now.
