Enough Wind?

“What do you think of a plan to build a 100 turbine wind farm in SE Kansas?” was the question of the day on the Wichita radio station I was listening to this morning as I drove to the airport. The station was airing various responses to this question. There were several very good responses about renewable energy, added jobs, etc. However, there was one response that was very unique.

“Hello, this Earl and I just wanted to let you know what my Aunt Mabel thinks of this idea. She said that we’ve got plenty of wind out here in Kansas and we don’t need to be farming anymore.”

It took the two announcers almost 30 seconds to get the crux of the message. Perhaps it was a busy day for them.
