Wind farm would destroy rural landscape

There was a plea in a letter to the editor by Bill Miller of the Anschutz Corporation not to kill the goose that lays the golden egg – i.e. the proposed giant turbine plant threatening to destroy the rural landscape of southern Wyoming.

The “gold,” presumably, was temporary jobs, a tiny number of permanent jobs and some estimated property taxes listed as a 20-year sum so it looks like a bigger number. Meanwhile, the goose and its golden eggs are enriching a billionaire in another state.

The writer says increasing the capacity of the TransWest Express Project would generate another $200 million in tax revenues (no period specified) but says they have no customers for the wind generation. Where does the extra electricity come from and go to?

Anyway, it seems Wyoming is only housing the goose. In exchange for housing said goose, Wyoming gets a large, ugly goose house, dead eagles, bats with exploded lungs, and destruction of open spaces all in the name of someone else making as much money as possible from that goose and its eggs.

Explain to me again why raising wind taxes and possibly killing said goose is a bad thing. Of course, if Wyoming ends up housing the goose laying the golden eggs, a large sign can be put up on I-80 saying “Wyoming, home of the largest pile of golden-egg-laying goose excrement in the world.”
