Because were going to examine the Progressive environmentalists positions on generating electricity. 3. Wind power, turbines. Environmentalists were for it before they were against it. Why?

No energy source is perfect, and every energy source either poses a riskor produces some sort of environmental disturbance .Progressive ideology, when it comes to energy, boils down to utopianism: progressives are holding out for the miracle solution- an unlimited, completely renewable, environmentally sound energy source with no downsides whatsoever. Unfortunately, the perfect energy source does not, and probably will not, ever, exist. Berezow and Campbell Science Left Behind, p. 78-79. 9. Read between the lines. Are we so smart and environmentalists just plain stupid? Maybe. But, also maybe, the real brains behind the movement is not pro-American.
