Bladeless Wind Turbines

It is possible to manufacture new bladeless wind turbines, so the incredibly ugly and dangerous blades could be removed at developer expense without subsidies. The turbines would them look like a series of towers, still a terrible blight on the landscape but without slaughtering wildlife. The turbines companies could easily do this but they do not have the investment capital without subsidies, and a quarter have recently gone bankrupt. Even if they did remove the blades the turbines would still be essentially useless, as my research over the past year shows very clearly. The Etherington Report of 2005 on this site predicted this fiasco in 2005. The developers, after removing the blades, could paint the towers green and brown to merge with the landscape.
