I attended a climate meeting yesterday at the University of Colorado. They said that most people are already highly traumatized by climate change, and that only 100 wind turbines could provide all of Boulders’ energy needs – which are currently met by this ultra-clean coal/gas fired power plant that many residents probably aren’t even aware of.
So, what they are proposing is this :
Of course they can’t get rid of the other power plant, because this week the wind only blew for a few hours.
So basically what they want to do is spend huge amounts of money to destroy the environment – and accomplish essentially nothing. The climate of Boulder isn’t changing.
