3 Support Overwhelmingly, Australians support wind energy and the construction of wind farms.

4 media coverage gives significant attention to challenges, protests, vocal opponents and high profile individuals, but fails to balance this with coverage of middle ground views, or with equivalent attention to the potential benefits of wind farms.

11 Visual impact Wind turbines at work are harnessing natures energy. The impact of fossil fuels on the landscape is beyond visual.

12 Property Theres no correlation between the presence of a wind farm and lower property prices.
