I think I agree with you here--except this is a photography forum, so even if airports or windmills are in fact more of a problem--and I agree that they are--we really should take the opportunity to discuss our ethics from a photographic perspective--no ?
Just because there are bigger problems in the world with causes I have no control over doesn't mean I shoudn't be concerned about my, even small impact upon it.
Really? This whole thread is a distraction to what's really going on in the name of law and for the good of the people. All in how you see it I suppose. How many owls do the photographers baiting them kill, versus the airports?
