Wind power bad for Wyoming countryside  

Credit:  Eiserman: Wind power bad for Wyoming countryside | Casper Star-Tribune | June 15, 2014 | trib.com ~~

Those of us who love the beautiful Wyoming countryside will be saddened to know that some of these places will soon be lost. These places will be changed forever by the development of wind farms. The extension to start development of the Wasatch Wind Farm near Douglas will probably be granted by the Industrial Siting Council (“Wasatch Wind seeks permit extension for proposed Glenrock wind farm,” June 2). The new Environmental Protection Agency plan cutting emissions could be good for the wind industry, so notes the news (“Wyoming politicians blast new EPA coal plant carbon rules,” June 3). This news does not help our efforts to protect the natural environment.

Producing electricity with wind is as clean as we can get. To be against this form of energy development is like being against motherhood and apple pie. Making electricity from the wind is extremely expensive and very disruptive to the natural environment. With other forms of energy development mitigating for damage to the environment is possible. This is not possible with wind generators.

Not only is mitigation not possible, the wind energy people have the privilege of breaking the law to kill eagles for 30 years (what happens after 30 years?). There is little to debate, wind farms are bad news for those of us who love Wyoming the way it is.
