Letters on turbines are often ridiculous
I think the parents of Northwestern Schools students should be alarmed. The industrial wind electric generator is causing problems and disrupting many events at the school, since it is within 5 miles of the school.
The quarterbacks at the football games are having problems with their signals not being heard. The basketball games are disrupted by the flicker, and many shots are going awry. The cross country runners are getting confused and lost in their races. Girls volleyball games are disrupted with players getting hung up in the nets because of the flutter.
The schools’ academic ratings will go down, since the turbine has caused problems with the ISTEP tests, and scores will probably drop by 30 points due to noise and flicker. Students will take at least five years to pass the third-grade reading tests and possibly be blinded from the effects of the the turbines. The school will probably have to hire at least one more nurse to handle all the students getting dizzy and nauseous from those infernal machines. Maybe we need to outlaw them entirely before they make us all a nation of deaf dolts.
Of course this is all tongue-in-cheek, but some of the other letters about the wind turbines are almost as ridiculous.
I am sure there are some problems, but also sure they are not as extreme as some are saying. The turbines have not caused global warming or a civil war in Syria, but these are about the only tragedies they have not been blamed for.
Let’s move on to something else. They are here to stay, and the topic is getting a little stale. There surely are other subjects to write about for letters to the editor.
