Letter: The future is in the wind

I like to stay informed about things that concern my environment. I don’t promote things that would harm our environment or the beauty of our great state.

Nuclear power plants, for instance, harm the environment. These plants make a radioactive waste that is harmful and remains forever. The method of disposal is to go destroy another piece of property by burying this waste encased in million of pounds of cement. A rather large hole is needed here. Coal, fuel oil or jet fuel, another source to make power, these are caustic and harmful as well. Never mind the devastation left from mining or extracting from the earth and the refining process.

Wind towers to me are mysteriously beautiful, kind of like the stars in the night sky. I like to think that the same Divine Spirit that created the stars in the night sky also planned out the life and intellect of the people who invented such an amazing machine as a wind tower. These towers do not harm the environment, and they are not offensive either. The wind towers take nothing from us but only borrow the wind as it passes by.

I would like to thank the company for the thoughtful planning and designs to make these farms safe and an environment-friendly source of power. I hope there are others who believe as I do.
