The Wilderness Society’s Peter Aengst, from his Bozeman, Montana office, writes us and suggests that wind energy development is just the ticket for the state of Wyoming.
I have a better idea. Instead of trashing Wyoming’s beautiful landscapes with miles and miles of ugly wind generators, let’s scatter these huge machines along 1-90 in Montana. They would do well in the Livingston/Bozeman areas and would be an attractive addition to Montana’s viewscape.
Heck, since he thinks they are so great, several dozen of these behemoths could be set up on the outskirts of Bozeman and Mr. Aengst could view them at will from his office.
Because these machines are so pleasing to the eye and fit in so nicely with the surrounding landscape, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind if a bunch of them were placed up around Glacier. That would impress the visitors.
Thanks go to Mr. Aengst for thinking of us, but if wind generators and wind farms are such a good idea, they will work just as well in Montana as in Wyoming and I, for one, would rather see them there.
