    I was reading in the NY Times recently about a family in Cape Cod, MA that want to put a wind turbine in their backyard, but the township blocked it because it will have “an adverse effect on the character of the neighborhood.” What are these people (and by these people, I mean the local municipalities) thinking? Maybe they should take a look at this video to see how positively just one turbine can affect one family (and even an entire village).

    Here is the NYT article if anyone wants to check it out: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/13/us/13wind.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=small%20wind%20turbine,%20mass&st=cse
