Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And like hydro, as we start to notice problems, we back off (chinese not withstanding).  That's true of every energy source we use.  I believe it is better to use one with no known side effects (wind, solar, to a lesser extent nuclear) than to continue using those with big problems (coal).

Your point is of course completely correct - we must monitor and research the costs.  But at this point I believe the balance as in favour of wind.

I feel comforted by the fact that strong powers are against wind and they haven't found any show stoppers yet.  You can be sure that the anti wind faction would jump at even the slightest evidence there was an issue.
