The environmentalists are screaming about wind power because some of the large turbines chop up birds and bats.

There's probably a better design for smaller scale use and some light wind applications.

I remember reading about a verticle turbine that looked like a stack of oil drum halves. Doesn't matter which way the wind blows from, or how fast and only minimal wind speed is necessary to get it spinning.

Unfortunately the folks who dole out the money are stuck on solar electric and wind electric when other types of energy conversion are also available.

I read about a system years ago that created heat from mechanical energy created from wind.
