Enviros on the run: The "abandoned wind turbines" edition

This article surprised me -- not because wind turbines/wind farms are a huge waste of money and very damaging in their own right, but because of the large number: 14,000.  What am I talking about? The number of wind turbines in the US that have been abandoned:
The symbol of Green renewable energy, our saviour from the non existent problem of Global Warming, abandoned wind farms are starting to litter the planet as globally governments cut the subsidies taxes that consumers pay for the privilege of having a very expensive power source that does not work every day for various reasons like it's too cold or the wind speed is too high.

The US experience with wind farms has left over 14,000 wind turbines abandoned and slowly decaying, in most instances the turbines are just left as symbols of a dying Climate Religion, nowhere have the Green Environmentalists appeared to clear up their mess or even complain about the abandoned wind farms.
Great stuff, huh? Read more about how wonderful wind turbines are, here (HT: Instapundit).
