Debate over Flint Hills  

Credit:  The Kansas City Star, kansascity.com 16 December 2010 ~~

Craig Volland of the Kansas Sierra Club is at it again in a Dec. 9 letter, criticizing the recent breakthrough public-private agreement to protect the Flint Hills by purchasing conservation easements.

Volland is a wind power zealot who wouldn’t know – or appreciate – a virgin prairie if he saw one. In interviews and in the Kansas Sierra Club’s position paper, he goes out of his way to denigrate Kansas prairies as just “cow pastures.”

Throughout its long and noble history, the national Sierra Club has fought to protect outstanding wild and scenic places from developers. But the Kansas chapter all but invites wind power developers to come on in.

This has to be something unique in Sierra Club history.
