We just wrote our state senator!

And a few other NC state senators to boot. Here's what we said:

Dear [senator],

We're writing tonight to ask you to reconsider legislation that will prohibit wind turbine installation along Western North Carolina ridge tops. While we certainly appreciate the intention behind this bill--avoiding unfortunate situations like the unsightly condominium on top of Sugar Mountain--we think there is room for discussion about wind turbines, which would provide renewable energy, tax income, and at least a few jobs to some of North Carolina's poorest counties. Can this legislation be amended to allow local county commissions to grant case-by-case permits after public hearings? If people don't want the things in their backyards, they'll make a stink about it. Otherwise, it seems we have much to gain...
