Wind energy facilities in the Columbia River Gorge?

This is a September 2007 FOX News report on the Cascade Wind Project, a large industrial wind facility proposed on Sevenmile Hill in Wasco County, Oregon, immediately adjacent to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.

Each wind tower would be 400 feet tall and highly visible from several miles away. The project would forever change the natural scenic views in the Rowena area of the Gorge. This landscape has been largely unaltered since Lewis and Clark traveled through the Gorge two hundred years ago.
