Aesthetic Democracy: Negotiating Visual Norms for Wind Energy Development
4:00 PM -  5:30 PM

Abstract: New investments in 'green' power are essential for mitigating the impacts of global climate change. While wind power is now considered both technologically mature and economically feasible, it faces bitter opposition from local communities on the grounds that wind turbines amount to visual pollution. This presentation will examine the role that visual imagery is playing in policy debates about the siting of new wind farms. Drawing examples from several contested projects in the United States, the presentation will describe conventional and alternative approaches for calculating 'viewsheds' in the process of environmental impact assessment.
