Wind Turbine Farms Generate Their Own Clouds

It appears that wind turbine farms, which some have billed as climate saviors, can also make their own fog-like climate.  This occurrence has been captured in some stunning images by Mike Page, a retired garage owner flying on his Cessna 150 aircraft.

Page observed, "The spinning blades whip moisture into the air like giant egg mixers.  It definitely occurs several times a year, sometimes gathering upwind of the turbines and sometimes downwind depending on the conditions.  The strange thing is that you will see this mist around the turbines while it is a bright clear day on the beach just a couple of miles away.  It is a fascinating example of how wind farms create their own micro-climate. It is the same as any geographical feature affecting the weather".
