13. Yes, the clean white lines of the turbines are much more attractive than
the 100,000 pump jacks, tank batteries, company roads, dikes, dams, spills, leaks,explosions, fires, waste pits, chromium contamination of the ground water, salt water leakage from injection into the water table that surround my home here in the Permian Basin of Texas.

Ugly fucking oilfield shit spilling, spewing, farting, and shitting on and in the landscape. Oops, forgot to mention the occasional giant sinkhole that appears around well sites, too, hundreds of yards across and hundreds of feet deep, swallowing telephone poles, state highways, and oil equipment as they go.

Birds? The tips of the turbines travel between 2 and 6 mph; must be some pretty fucking stupid birds to fly into those. Wanna see dead birds? Go to any airport. Perhaps we should shut them instead, if birds are a big worry. Never have seen a dead bird at the foot of any of the hundreds of turbines here locally, but I've seen a lot of them stuck in the crude oil of waste disposal pits used in the oil field. The crude looks like water from above. Birds hit it, get stuck, and die.

Yeah, those turbines are terrible!!!
