AMD Sensible wind power

A lot more space efficient, not to mention safer for birds.

Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.” 5) For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice [...]

8) However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9) Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance.
Like 12Bass says, critical thinking and the scientific method are probably the best tools we have to avoid it. (bias)

However, this method relies on repeatable, falsifiable hypotheses and theories. Only an extremely small spectrum of time and space can be rendered into these, or at least a good approximation of such.

Key problem: inertia. Even with the greatly reduced friction of maglev, you still have all that mass to get spinning, which means it's only going to be viable under conditions where wind is reasonably constant and of a consistantly appropriate magnitude.

To add to OB's perfectly valid comment, people complain about the intrusion conventional wind turbines have on a landscape. That huge monument to green power is going to offend a lot of people.
