letters | WRANGLING OVER WIND POWER

A financial disaster

WIND TURBINES are a political boondoggle and a financial catastrophe. They save no carbon emissions. Turbines are never fully operational and always require traditional back up, so coal and oil fired power plants must keep running.

Aside from the cost, the visual and sound pollution destroy our scenic vistas and natural environments. Want to be on the side that is just, reasonable, and environmentally friendly? Then join Save Our Skyline and stop the insanity of treating our rural shores as some East Berlin-style industrial nightmare.
