Sadly, an obviously deeply misinformed Joliet resident pens a wildly inaccurate picture of wind farms and renewable energy in a letter-to-the-editor in the December 21 Carbon County News…

Apparently, the letter author would rather see oil well flares and the consequences of wildfires and other results of man-caused climate change on our landscape and our skies, than wind turbines, which stand, turning in the wind, as a symbol of our move to a clean energy future. He ignores the billions that are spent on subsiding fossil fuels, and he ignore the impact of fossil fuels on our climate and our health. The carbon footprint of renewable energy is far lower than of fossil fuels, obviously. Hate to tell him, but wind turbine blades are increasingly recycled (when they eventually need to be replaced, after many, many years of service). Hilarious that he references Montana’s history, when it is actually mining and fossil fuels interests that have exploited our state, creating numerous environmental issues and running off with the profits, while leaving Montana taxpayer on the hook for billions in clean-up costs. But, what canyou expect from a science-denying and fact-free man-caused climate change denier?

Montana is not only windy. It’s a sunny state. Let’s use our abundant wind and sun to help create a bright energy future!

MAGA, trump, no one loves their children if they deny climate change, Vickery, paycheck depends on climate-change denial?
