Poland’s governing Law and Justice Party plans to require new wind turbines be built a mile away from homes and schools, citing concerns about rising electricity bills, reducing costly green energy subsidies, aesthetics and health issues.
There are few people on Earth as carefully vetted, as rigorously trained and as highly respected as America's Apollo astronauts.
