Drilling for oil is an extremely high tech enterprise: especially something like fracking. Windmills are the truly ancient tech. They have been around for millennia and their deficiencies have not gone away even as the materials improve.

 Fracking is old tech: it's just directional drilling followed by explosives that tend to release pollutants in all directions rather than just into the pipe that was intended. And yes windmills have been used for some time, but the technology for capturing it's endless energy has advanced significantly. The sun has been around for quite awhile as well so I've heard. Do you ever fear it won't come up tomorrow?
