We absolutely agree that we have serious electrical energy issues (like air pollution) that are harming our environment. We want meaningful action, not business as usual. To really fix these problems we support sound scientific solutions.
We are open to ALL proposed ideas. Clearly some proposals will be much better than others. To separate out the good from the bad, all suggestions need to have real-world evidence that they make sense.
To determine its actual value, this proof would consist of an independent, objective and thorough assessment from: 1) technical, 2) economic, and 3) environmental perspectives. This is called using scientific methodology.
Our concern with industrial wind power is that NONE of this has been done. Further, essentially all evidence to date is that industrial wind power actually fails on all three counts.
For instance, no independent real world data exists that proves that wind power has any more than a tiny affect on air quality. Do citizens really want to spend a Trillion dollars for that — and have their utility rate triple besides?
And does it make sense that we spend all this money for a very small improvement in air quality — but in the process cause many other environmental problems? We don’t think that makes any sense.
So we join our environmentally concerned neighbors, and ask that they likewise support only sound scientific solutions that will be REAL FIXES for the energy issues we have.
As we learned as children reading the story of the Pied Piper — beware the enticements made by profiteers.
