Eco-Activists Wage War on Texas Wind Energy Print E-mail

Eco-activists have a new enemy, and it's called , the 'wind.' Environmentalists in Texas contend that wind farms in the sweeping plains of West Texas have become death traps for bats.  

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "A 3,000-mile network of transmission lines designed to bring wind-generated power from West Texas to homes and businesses from Dallas to San Antonio should be fully operational by Tuesday, year’s end."

An eco-extremist Green Party group, Save Our Scenic Hill County Environment, is blasting wind energy farms for lowering the value or real estate properties. They warn that a view of wind turbines could convince environmentalists to live elsewhere.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "The $6.8 billion price tag is nearly $2 billion higher than the 2008 estimates when construction began, mostly because it took 600 more miles than planned to navigate tricky terrain and to follow roads and fences rather than cutting directly through the properties of reluctant landowners."

Eco-terrorists plan to launch a statewide campaign to sabotage the operations of wind farms.
