More interesting stuff stolen from Signal vs. Noise:

A farmer in Iowa who leases a quarter acre of cropland to the local utility as a site for a wind turbine can typically earn $2,000 a year in royalties from the electricity produced. In a good year, that same plot can produce $100 worth of corn. Wind turbines strung across the farm at appropriate intervals can provide a welcome boost to farm income, yielding a year-round cash flow.

So says this press release.... I really am hopeful that capitalism's private sector -- incentivized by government carrots -- will become the most effective engine of environmental responsibility.
