We went by a big wind farm in Indiana, on the way back from Wisconsin in November.  Bettie was driving, so I got to take the cool pictures.

I’m in favor of renewable energy, and sometimes it makes sense financially.  I understand that windmills like this take about thirty years to offset the costs of manufacturing and installation – and that their effective life is thirty years.  So it’s a break-even proposal, with no compelling reason to do it (I’m not big into anthropogenic global warming – green is a preference, not a religion).

Still, I like the spare elegance of these things.
