Put wind turbines on the west side  

Credit:  Tri-City Herald | March 24, 2019 | www.tri-cityherald.com ~~

Wind turbines are an environmental travesty. Stop at the viewpoint between Yakima and Ellensburg. The beautiful Cascades in the distance are marred by the wind turbines in the foreground. The state forced the county to allow them,The rustic, historic hills south of Kennewick are now a scene from “Star Trek.”

Travel from Boardman toward Portland. The majestic Columbia River flows through canyons and desert, however the views are ruined forever by the wind turbines on both sides of the river. Thankfully, they stop at the scenic protected area, otherwise they would extend at least to Hood River. How about, before any new wind turbines are approved east of the Cascades, that a minimum of 100 must be built on the west side, along Puget Sound and the islands and on the ocean coast. Listen to the outcry then. We only want them on the other side, not here. Environmentalists should have their attorneys opposing any wind turbines due to their scenic and visual impact on the landscape and environment. I’m sure that Gov. Inslee would support replacing coal and gas power plants with less obtrusive and more efficient nuclear power plants. That could be his presidential campaign slogan.
