Letter: Wind energy impacts 

Credit:  Enid News & Eagle | April 4, 2018 | www.enidnews.com ~~

There have been several articles published lately by the Enid News & Eagle touting the benefits of wind energy in Northwest Oklahoma, particularly for the economy.

We, members of the student organization CORE (Conserving Our Ranger Environment), agree that finding alternative energy solutions is necessary given the earth’s finite fossil fuel resources.

However, as students of Northwestern Oklahoma State University, and members of the community, we have questions about potential negative impacts that wind energy development could bring.

The impacts on the environment, the wildlife habitats, the health and well-being of the local inhabitants, and on native peoples are questions that have not been thoroughly addressed.

As students, we feel it is our right to have a complete and full understanding of the impact of wind energy on the inhabitants of Northwest Oklahoma. We feel these questions are shared by others in the community, as well. A civil and thorough discussion of these concerns is necessary to gain a full and well-rounded understanding of the impact of wind energy on our planet.

We invite the community to join us in exploring this very important issue. It is our duty to educate ourselves as citizens of the global community. The Wind Energy conversation consisting of a multi-perspective panel will be on April 19 at 7p.m., on the NWOSU Enid campus room 225. This conversation will also be broadcast to the NWOSU campuses in Alva, Woodward,and Ponca City. All are welcome.
