The online campaigning organisation 38degrees (generally a very sensible lot, although I didn't like their last energy policy campaign much) have a process of deciding what they should work on next. They have a list and people get to vote. pro-wind campaigning (to counter some of the antis) is one. Which you might like to support if you are a 38degrees 'member'. If not you should probably join anyway - they are doing good work.
