    I watched Big Wind on TVO and felt bad for the farmers (but not the hobby farmers) who can’t bare to leave their land. I tried to think what I would do if I were in their shoes. Not being a sentimental person, if I owned a family farm, I’d put a dozen wind turbines on my property and go buy another farm somewhere else. At $10K annually per turbine, I’d be able to afford a second property. It’s hard to know what will be worse for these farmers, leaving their farms or dealing with their anxiety over wind turbines. My guess is the latter will take more years off their lives.

      That’s exactly the problem Larse. Many landowners who have turbines on their properties don’t even live in the area, leaving their neighbours to suffer with the health effects, visual blight, noise, ground vibrations, shadow flicker and infrasound. How is that fair to destroy the quality of life of your neighbours while you’re safely tucked miles away?
