REVIEW BEGINS: "If you don't live in West Texas or remember it from "back when," you probably don't really comprehend what's happening in that part of the state, where traffic jams are rare and wide open space plentiful.
In a word, it's windmills. Well, more accurately, two words: wind turbines.
Like sunflowers in a wet year, wind turbines by the hundreds are popping up on mesa tops from Sweetwater to the Midland-Odessa area to the Panhandle. Nolan County alone will have 1,500 turbines rotating by the end of the year, enough to power a large city."
