One turbine would take up some 247 acres. Altogether, their footprint would cover 1,931 square miles...
This is nonsense. The footprint of a wind turbine - including access roads, transformers, etc. - is about 1% of the total area of a wind farm. The land can still be farmed and wildlife can still live happily around them.
