Some renewable power doesn’t make sense  

Credit:  The Day | March 11. 2021 | www.theday.com ~~

In reading the Sunday, March 7, Business section, I was struck by the photograph of the wind farm on top of Saddleback Mountain in Maine. I wondered, does clear cutting mountain tops for coal have a different effect on these forests than clear cutting mountain tops for scores of wind turbines?

In five or 10 years I can envision scenic photographs or postcards of the beautiful Fall foliage on hundreds of New England mountainsides in full glorious colors, all festooned with twirling white pinwheels. The price of progress. At least the felled trees will be trucked to a biomass power plant to be burned and create more carbon dioxide and contaminants.

What a feedback loop! And I am a registered Democrat for 40 years.
