Deep in the Heart of Wind

From the Environmental blog at the NR:
...A major obstacle to renewable energy development in greener states like California is that environmentalists, who have more political power there than they do in Texas, are often opposed to the construction of new energy infrastructure and transmission lines, since it can interfere with efforts at land conservation and species protection. They've succeeded in delaying such projects, frustrating advocates of renewable energy like Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has remarked, "If you can't put solar panels in the Mojave Desert, where the hell can you put them?" ....

A lot of enviromentalists also don't like the idea that the turbines scar the skyline and the people around the turbines don't like the noise.....
