A load of hot air

Wind power and wind farms are the new in vogue, concept du jour for all things green and mighty.  No matter that there are inefficient. No matter that, for many, they are a blight on the landscape.  No matter that they must, of necessity, be in highly visible locations on the landscape, exacerbating their impact.  No matter that they are expensive.  They have been mandated.  Even if their construction doesn't actually reduce nor replace the need for added electrical capacity.
Simple lunacy.  How do we stop this madness?
