Thanks Max.  I was a big fan of wind power until ~2008.  Starting in that
year, I began making frequent trips coast to coast, and saw wind farms in
various places.  I noted the locations and set my computer to remind me to
look out the window when various wind farms were coming into view.  It is
something that burned an image into my retinas: most of the time in most of
those wind farms, all of the turbines were sitting still and quiet.
