NIMBYs in their natural environment

A quick video covering neighborhood opposition to a wind turbine in Barrington.  Good reporting by the Projo, which actually bothered to check in with neighbors of the Portsmouth Abbey windmill — who say, for instance, “They should put up 100 more of ’em.”

  1. All the more reason to give them a windmill, in my opinion. Hey while we’re at it…maybe a prison, too.

  2. This is not surprising at all for Barrington. I had to live there for one very long year. These people will gang up on you if you don’t mow your lawn twice a week. Apparently my weekend grass cutting was insufficient. It’s almost a given that they would hate a windmill.
