9. The technology for off shore wind farms is not proven.
Rates will triple. Even Wal Mart objects to off shore wind farms in Mass. Due to increase rates. Wind farms actually produce about a tenth of the power that they purport. The money is made for the corporations that build them and the renewable energy credits. This does not save the environment. The propaganda is similar to shock and awe. Save the mountain tops. Well the mountain tops are blown off. Cement is put down.Trees are clear cut on land. The turbines are over 40 stories tall now. Animals and even fish just leave the area. Then pesticides are sprayed routinely going into ground water.

The wind farms destroy the fishing industry. There is a lot more than views involved. Read about it.
