Maryland Wind Turbines Pit Green on Green

House OKs energy projects on preserved farmland
A bill that could allow hundreds of acres of preserved farmland to be converted to wind farms or other renewable energy projects was approved Monday by the House of Delegates, 97 to 33.

Supporters say farmers need the ability to diversify their income to stay viable. Some conservationists, though, worry that the measure would open the door to other commercial activities, ultimately undermining the viability of farmland preserved at taxpayer expense.
There is a certain brand of "environmentalist" whose goal is not so much to save the environment as to prevent anyone from benefiting from natural resources. Remember, they don't love nature; they just hate people.
