Another brilliant environmental idea that isn't:
Home wind turbines are significantly underperforming and in the worst cases generating less than the electricity needed to power a single lightbulb, according to the biggest study of its kind carried out in Britain.
Those who do invest in personal wind turbines better be in it for the long haul:
... the figures indicate that it would take more than 15 years to generate enough 'clean' energy to compensate for the manufacture of the turbine in the first place.
Nuclear is looking better and better.

The Guardian also omits to mention that if every house in a suburb had it's own wind turbine, you could pretty much say goodbye to the local bird population. A sky full of Swirling Blades of Death is not condusive to avian life.
