Art in opposition to wind farms

Special thanks to Graham Hancock for permitting us to share his artwork. Mr. Hancock's words below accompanied his haunting artwork:

"This is an original painting, 16x11 in, oil on canvas board. It reflects the artist's feelings about windmills. Needless to say I'm not a fan. The painting represents the evolution of wind power in a dystopian future. Don't worry windmills are harmless, aren't they?

Windmills are an expensive, inefficient and unreliable source of large scale energy. They are a malignant tumor on the landscape that destroys the natural beauty of the land. Living amongst them is like living in a machine. I agree there is something elegant about a single windmill. But smothering the countryside with their visual pollution is a crime. It is our obligation to protect the beauty of our natural heritage against this scourge." For more information visit http://www.facebook.com/pages/Artists-Against-Wind-Farms/149266621785474
