The reason they're NIMBYs is that they have too little of interest in their lives so need something to complain about. If you go trail riding on a silent bike they'll complain that you're a danger because they can't hear you coming. They'll force you to have an audible warning fitted, then complain that it disturbs / scares them.
The same self-serving bunch want the benefits of city life - cheap energy, cheap personal and / or public transport, cheap access to services etc, but aren't prepared to pay with the congestion (that we have), wind turbines (that we need) or higher infrastructure costs (because they live in the middle of nowhere).
Sorry - I'm ranting aren't I? *shuts up*.
