Question by Patches O’Houlihan: Since wind farms have killed more people than nuclear power plants, should wind farms be outlawed?
Can it possibly get any better? A sacred “green energy” boondoggle of the left has killed more people in the U.S. than nuclear power plants. Made my day when I heard that.

Question by starzzguitar: How do I power a lighting fixture with a wind turbine?
I don’t need a lecture on the wonders of “green energy”, the benefits, blah, blah, blah. I am not hooking up to the “power grid” and I really don’t care about the “community”. I want a nuts and bolts answer. I’m making a small vertical spin wind turbine, and I just want to power one or two security lights. No, I don’t want to use solar power, too unreliable. What kind of generator and voltage regulator do I need? Do I need storage batteries? Wiring? Etc. Thanks!
Answer by Tex Gee this info is available all over the net, so why bother us, Just search for wind turbine or wind power and you will get hundreds of thousands of responses, maybe even millions. It will be a lot easier for you to read it somewhere than for me to try to explain.

Question by MaryCheneysAccessory: What are the pros and cons of wind energy?
There are alot of wind farms going up in my area. The biggest con that I see from these generators is that they pollute the beauty of our mountain ridges here in Western Pennsylvania. Sure, I am all for energy independence, but I think we rush to solutions in this country. What are your thoughts?
Answer by Scorpius59 We have those in Texas. I guess it depends on how close you live to them. At least they’re quiet ! We need to use solar energy too. Probably a lot less land needed to “capture” it. There are some windmills out around Galveston. They are actually pretty out there on the beach !
