While I respect private property rights, property owners also have a responsibility to the neighborhood.
Members of the ranching organizations to which I belong oppose wind farms. They represent huge deposits to Wyoming landfills as the components are not recyclable. We respect the environment such that we avoid projects which kill scores of raptors, thus causing proliferation of the small rodents on which they prey. Some of these rodents carry bubonic plague or rabies.
We who truly love the land learn to use our ag resources to survive and produce food and fiber for the world. We strive to leave the land better than we found it.
