Windmills are a centerpiece of Obama’s energy plans for the nation.

We’ve already documented how wind power subsidies take from the windless to give to the winded, and some problems when the wind blows too much.

Here’s another, from Britain, regarding noise pollution:

Wind turbines are being turned off during high winds because they are too noisy.

Documents from local authorities show that 269 complaints were received about noise from the rotating blades in the past three  years. Some came from residents living up to three miles away.

In nearly half of these cases, operators  switched turbines off or reduced their speed.

This is just a minor aberration.  We’re still on track with our high speed train, water conservation and LED light bulb and incandescent phase out plans.
