Wilmington workshop to examine impacts of wind energy on coast

RALEIGH – Experts from the John Locke Foundation, American Tradition Institute, and George Mason University will meet Monday, Dec. 5, in Wilmington to poke holes in the stories coastal North Carolina residents have been hearing about wind power.

A free public workshop is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, in Burney Ballroom A.

“Environmental pressure groups, the ‘Big Wind’ industry, and self-interested state bodies are going around the state trying to sell the public on the idea of allowing wind power plants along North Carolina’s coast,” said workshop panelist Daren Bakst, JLF Director of Legal and Regulatory Studies. “This workshop will present an alternative view of wind power and what it would mean to North Carolina’s coastal communities.”

“Participants will learn about wind power in general, including its intermittency problems, high costs, limited value, and environmental and economic impact,” Bakst added. “Myths will be countered, including why wind power would not play any meaningful role in energy security.”

Bakst will conduct the workshop with John Droz, Fellow at the American Tradition Institute, and Dr. David Schnare, Director of George Mason’s Environmental Law Clinic and Director of ATI’s Environmental Law Center.

Preregister for the event by writing to Kate Day at kday@johnlocke.org.
