Wind turbines are real monsters, looming up to 200 metres tall, and they stand exactly where you can see them best: on exposed, elevated positions. Switzerland, however, does not produce much wind energy.
Huge foundations made from energy-intensive concrete (grey energy!) blight the landscape to an unbelievable extent, while monstrous new access roads to the wind farms are built through the heart of nature.
Plus, wind turbines have a negative impact on animal life: hundreds of thousands of birds and bats die every year, caught in the huge rotor blades; their habitats are altered and disturbed, not to mention other disruptions such as noise pollution that affect both animals and people.
