Letters to the Editor

To those of you who support wind energy for environmental consideration (renewable energy, climate change, etc.) I commend your intentions.  Sadly, however, you have been misled. If you believe that wind energy will replace coal generation, it will not.  It is too unreliable.  Coal is used...
