With all the talk of renewable energy and the green house effect, I thought I would share our experience of 2 years ago. We went to Maple Ridge Wind Farm on Tug Hill in northern NY to visit the wind mills. It was awesome and you know, people are worried about the noise, but all we heard was a "whooose, whooose" as the paddles turned around. It was really a peaceful sound. But, then I am lulled to sleep when hearing a fan or air conditioner. ( Didn't do well in afternoon business meetings in the summer!!) Go to the following for more info: http://www.allbusiness.com/services/business-services/3950456-1.html. You can click on the photos and bring them up larger. To me this makes more sense and cents. The noise pollution is minimal when you compare to the other forms of energy pollution. I would rather have one of these next door than a radioactive silo!!
