From ABC News: Wind Farm Plans Stir up Storm Over Military Radar
The article begins: The U.S. military is growing increasingly concerned that proposed wind farms can disrupt or block radar designed to detect threats and protect America’s skies, a problem that is stalling the alternative energy projects around the country.
The title quote comes from Democrat Ike Skelton, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, who expressed concern that, “We’ve heard concerns that wind turbines may interfere with radar and impact military training routes.”
Pay close attention to what is said in the article: “While the radar interference issue is not new, it has become a bigger problem as more wind projects move through the permit process. Industry leaders and the Energy Department have said that wind power could provide as much as 20 percent of the nation’s electricity by 2030.”
Along with many opponents to industrial wind, we at Allegheny Treasures have stated our concerns to officials and in posts regarding the cumulative impact of the uncontrolled growth of industrial wind.
It is time to reign in this tax shelter posing as green energy.
