Protecting Kansas' tallgrass prairie and Flint Hills from "wind farm" predators  

Friends in Kansas have been fighting for the past 5 years to protect the world’s last Tallgrass prairie ecosystem in the Flint Hills of Kansas from predators.

The predators in this case are a bunch of US and foreign “wind farm” developers and lobbyists – who gain cooperation from receptive legislators, regulators and other government officials – plus some electric utility executives who don’t have the fortitude to tell political leaders the truth about the real environmental, ecological, economic, scenic and property value costs of wind energy.

If you’d like to see what the good people in Kansas are trying to protect, look at the April 2007 issue of National Geographic which features a collection of photographs from the Tallgrass prairie by renown photographer Jim Richardson – or go to this web site and click on the large prairie picture. Then click on slide show. You will also find a link to the National Geographic story as well as lots of other Richardson photos on the side bar.

Please enjoy the show! (Thanks to Rose Bacon for providing the link!)
