My solution to windfarm objectors

There appears to be a lot of people who are not happy about living near windfarms.

They complain about the noise from wind turbines, property devaluation, and the damage to natural looking landscapes.

On the other hand, the wind industry and some environmental groups, argue that people who complain about wind turbines do not understand the importance of green energy.

They say that wind turbines look beautiful, and that living near wind turbines should bring pride to a community.

So why not solve a problem by creating a registry of ecology-minded people, who are prepared to buy property from people unhappy about living near wind turbines?

I wonder how many people would sign up — would you?
