Donald Trump was in Iowa recently, and issued a Trumpism critical of wind power. The media jumped on its propaganda pony to point out that Iowa loves wind, and gets 36.6% of its energy from wind. The story was that Trump was a lone critical voice and that Iowans are happy to reap wind profits and jobs and nobody minds becoming America’s power house. That’s just not true, according to the op ed. There is serious resistance to industrial wind in Iowa and other rural states. I already know this, but many do not, preferring instead to believe the rosy picture painted by an industry making money hand over fist exploiting rural America.............As one Iowan commented, you just haven’t become effective in your opposition until some arrogant, urban environmentalist accuses you of being funded by the fossil fuel industry. Nailed it.
