technology, therefore evil

I am sure you have all seen T. Boone Pickens' TV commercials about the huge opportunity to go wind-power for 20% of the US's electrical power, right? It looks like the ultimate jackpot as wind-powered turbines (they are not windmills; "windmills" are technically pumps) literally sweep the world and product power by doing nothing more that harvesting the kinetic power of the weather to produce megawatts of electricisty. win: win. No pollution.


Holy mackerel: wrong. Apparently they produce a low-level hum which makes human life completely unbearable. It may decimate the human race.

So back to the fossil fuels, people! Save a life -- burn gas!
