Do Extraterrestrials Hate Wind Power?by Steve Hammons
Posted: 14:00 January 24, 2009
Ever since an energy-generating wind turbine near Conisholme, England, was damaged on Jan. 4, 2009, and witnesses reported glowing objects with "tentacles" there at the same time, interest by the international public and news media has been significant.

One of three 20-meter blades torn off and another was severely damaged. Ecotricity, the operator of the 213-foot-high wind turbines, and the manufacturer, German firm Enercon, are trying to determine the cause of the damage.
Around the world, newspapers, TV stations, Web sites, blogs and other communication platforms have been talking about the "UFO" that may have collided with, or otherwise damaged the wind turbine somehow.
Some journalists in the UK and internationally have reported on this incident in a professional and straightforward manner. Other writers and broadcasters have poked fun at the idea of a UFO as the cause of the damage.
In all news coverage though, a link between the idea of UFOs and the wind turbine has been established. Some headlines have had fun with this connection:
"Do Space Aliens Dislike Wind Power, or Are They Just Clumsy?" asked a New York Times Web site headline.
"Aliens hate green energy," the Discovery Magazine online headline said.
"We tried to be green but the aliens wouldn't let us," an Asian-based Web site headline stated.
An Australian Web site headline asked, "UFO damages wind turbine - Aliens not alternative energy fans?"
An article on the Web site of the UK newspaper The Mail took a different view - that the UFO beings were smart to damage the wind turbines because the devices interfere with the scenic beauty of the countryside. "Proof at last... aliens in UFOs are far more intelligent than we are," claimed the headline.
Of course, the entire topic of UFOs and visitors to Earth from other planets and/or dimensions is a subject that often results in ridicule and disbelief. So, linking this common ridicule with wind energy technology would seem inevitable.
