Background and Context of Debate:

Yes

Wind farms can be built piecemeal; generating revenue from the first windmill. "wind farms can be built piecemeal, unlike most power stations. A half-finished coal-fired or nuclear power plant is a useless waste of money, but a half-finished wind farm is simply a wind farm half the size originally intended—and one that has been providing revenue since the first turbine was completed."


No

Size. Windmills are generally large. The tallest windmills are about 20 stories tall.


Not In My Back Yard! Some neighbors don't want a windmill near their home. They can slow down and sometimes even stop wind farms trying to move into their area.

Noise. Windmills are sometimes noisy. Mostly windmills are quiet (see Myth Versus Fact) but sometimes neighbors of wind farms complain of the noise.

Installation cost. Putting in a windmill costs about $45000 to $50000.


Is it justified to stop using windmills because 1000 birds a year could fly into them and die?
