If Tilting Fails, Sue

On Friday, we linked to an Oregonian story about health complaints from a few resident of eastern Oregon who live near wind turbines.  Time for a class-action lawsuit, eh, Sancho?

Now on Sunday, the New York Times puffed up the allegations from some northern New York residents about “Big Wind” throwing its money and muscle around, trying to land the windiest sites for development. Throw the inflammatory term “corruption” around — “In Rural New York, Windmills Can Bring Whiff of Corruption” — and you’ve got just a great story about the predations of a supposedly nice and clean industry.

Jeez, you just can’t win.*

The cartoon, by the way, comes courtesy The Chilling Effect, thechillingeffect.org, a blog that highlights the extremes and inanities of the global warming movement. Good news for good guys, they’ve joined forces with the Institute For Liberty, a free-market advocacy, non-profit group. Congrats!


* Which appears to be the point for some opponents — no new energy, anywhere.
