We will meet renewable energy targets largely with wind. But community attitudes and acceptance rely on a number of factors beyond mere aestheticsA known side-effect of wishing for things is that they tend to come true. Wishing, as most of us do, for the rapid decarbonisation of the machines we use to generate electricity results in physical changes that manifest in Australian communities
