    Smile Does this sentence sound natural? 'Wind turbines produce enough noise that can be'

    Hello everyone,

    Does this sentence sound natural?

    Wind turbines produce enough noise that can be compared to a car travelling at high speed.

    Wind is not regular, and at times, unpredictable. What about the comma?
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    I'd say

    'Wind turbines produce as much noise as a car travelling at high speed.'

    'Wind is irregular and mostly unpredictable.'

    "at times" ≠ "mostly"
