First the Duke of Edinburgh called onshore wind farms “useless”. Now the Dutch are up in arms over them. The Netherlands government is going to cut back on wind subsidies. Homeowners and industry will be forced to subsidize the higher costs associated with wind power. Many Dutch citizens are fighting proposed wind farms near their residences, complaining that it will ruin the view and hurt property values.

What happened to our green energy utopia?
