The Changing Focus on Science
Wind power has emerged as an option to create energy without increasing climate change. I first observed turbines in our area about 1980 when I first provided land use consulting services on the Crotched Mountain Foundation land in Greenfield, NH.
Wikipedia states that 20 turbines were installed and they operated for about 19 years. This was the first Wind Farm constructed in New Hampshire. I do not know why the towers and turbines were removed; perhaps the limited number of turbines in the array was insufficient to provide a reasonable profit.
There are several arrays of turbines, called Wind Farms, that I have noticed in my travels across the state. Today there are several in the mountainous section of the state. A look at the Wikipedia website on Wind Farms in New Hampshire reveals indications that the residents living in the vicinity of Wind Farms are of nearly equal mind as to the environmental effects of them. I do not know about the economic impacts to the localities, but looking at the big picture I find that there may certainly be a potential for considerable reduction in climate change.
