You would have to cover the entire state in wind turbines to replace the coal 
fired plants. and that still wouldn't do it.  It is an absolutely ridiculous 
notion that wind turbines could produce enough electricity to replace even one 
coal fired plant.  And the idea that only 4 birds would be killed per 
turbine, how does anyone know that?  When I was in Highland County earlier this 
spring, there were thousands of migrating birds flying high enough to run into 
blades of the turbines.  There were over 4000 bats killed at one turbine site 
last summer.
