Green energy plant threat to wilderness areas

My parents live in Northern Austria in an area that’s called the wood-quarter. It’s so-called because it’s particularly forested as compared to the rest of Eastern and Northern Austria. Just 150 years ago this entire region was a hideout for the lawless in Austria and even the military did not dare to go there most of the time. I remember when we went to Vienna as kids. The 120 km trip included long stretches of road with forests on both sides. Last summer when we went there a lot of those forests have either gone or they are much smaller now. Instead, you see windmills everywhere. The first windmill was iconic. Now they are just eyesores. People are pissed – rightly so.
