Student group Conserving Our Ranger Environment from Northwestern Oklahoma State University-Enid will hold a community conversation about wind energy in the school later this month.

The program, “Wind Turbines Come Sweeping Down the Plains,” will be held at Enid’s campus in Room 225, 7 p.m. April 19. The conversation will be broadcast to NWOSU campuses in Alva, Woodward and Ponca City, with an open invitation to anyone interested.

“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,” CORE President Jason Ogg and Vice President Caitlyn Shortnacy wrote in a letter to the editor. “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.”

The wind energy conversation will consist of a multi-perspective panel, including panelists Casey Camp-Horinek ,of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma; John Harper, vice president of external affairs for Public Service Company of Oklahoma; cattle rancher Tim Olm; Waynoka Public Schools Superintendent Scott Cline; Woodward farmer Sue Selman; and special guest Julia Butterfly Hill.

“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,” Ogg and Shortnacy wrote. “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.”
