One of the great skills in life is keeping your mouth shut when you don't know something. Instead of expressing an opinion on a topic about which you know nothing, You just remain silent and let the experts discuss it.
Well, I don't know anything about wind and these wind turbines. I mean, I know that there is some energy associated with wind and that it would be nice to harness it, but I can't understand how these turbines can suck up the energy, store it, and deliver it, so you can flick on the lights. Actually, I'm not sure that is what the turbines do. I just don't understand it. I don't understand it and I don't need/want to understand it. Therefore, I don't babble about how great they are or how horrible they are.
But, not knowing about these things doesn't stop everyone from commenting upon them.
Electricity from wind turbines is only generated when the wind is blowing and turning the blades. If the wind is not blowing wind the blades are not turning, then no electricity is generated. Because of this, electricity is intermittent and electricity supply is not as dependable as electricity power generated by coal, gas, or nuclear plants. This unreliability along with the cost of making and installing wind turbines along with a total life of 20years or less makes wind energy more expensive than traditional sources. Also, wind turbines may be placed in remote areas which requires significant investments in transmission lines. Not to mention they are real eyesores and kill a significant amount of birds.
