For those of us who have admired the visual wonder and "green energy" promise of wind turbins, this is a wake up call that explains the realistic and often negative impact on our environment that large unregulated wind farms produce for man and the natural inhabitants of the land masses involved, and extintsion of nature in those large land masses, often with irreversable negative consequences. The only down side of this book is the author's frequent blaming Obama's administration for the yet unsolved situation. We the inhabitants of this land are all responsible for the continuation of all life in a way that insures its longivity.
