Wind Energy/ Poetic Synergy

This is a not super fascinating article in the New York Times about how people living near wind farms are complaining about noise from the turbines.

"I remember the sound of silence so palpable, so merciless in its depths, that you could almost feel your heart stop in sympathy,” she said. “Now we are prisoners of sonic effluence. I grieve for the past."
