National Review Article
Big 'Green' and Mean: A Wind-Energy Giant Attacks Small-Town America
Robert Bryce
A multi-billion dollar wind power corporation is using taxpayers' money to sue small towns and individuals in an attempt to get more federal subsidies. Meanwhile they don't pay any federal income tax. "If wind energy is as green and clean as, the Sierra Club, and the Natural Resources Defense Council keep telling us, why is the world's biggest wind-energy company trying to sue rural governments and activists into submission?"
