The military wants North Dakota and four other states with nuclear missile arsenals to consider introducing new rules aimed at preventing conflicts between wind turbines and helicopters that provide security at launch facilities.
Now, in large parts of California, if you want to keep the lights on during the blackouts, you better have a flashlight or a gas lamp. Twenty-first century green dreams have led to 19th-century realities.

To some it may feel as though the wind turbine controversy has faded away. But even now a lot of forces are building behind the scenes which will soon let loose in a flurry of activity. The adjudicatory hearing for the Republic Wind project is scheduled to begin on Nov 4th.
