I just signed the petition against the wind turbines near the Kirtland's warbler territory. Just FYI, although it seems that the turbines are spinning slowly, that is an illusion. The newer models are 150 to 260 feet high with rotors that can reach up to 435 feet above the ground. While the rotor speeds seem low, the tips of those rotors can reach speeds of up to 180 mph in a strong wind.
