ALONEI HABASHAN, GOLAN HEIGHTS - NOVEMBER 27:  Coils of barbed-wire protect visitors from wandering into the minefields that surround the wind farm on Mount Bnei Rasan overlooking the border with Syria on November 27, 2009 near the Israeli community of Alonei Habashan in the Golan Heights. The ten wind turbines produce 6 megawatts of electricity which is used by local industry and the residents of the disputed plateau which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War. It was built in 1992 and was the first commercial wind-power project in the Middle East. The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark will take place between December 6-18 with representatives over 160 countries with the objective to prevent global warming and climate changes.
