Opposing the Terra-Gen wind project is not NIMBYism, unless you regard the entire planet as Humboldt's backyard (NCJ Daily, May 30).
The wind generators do not reduce CO2 emissions, they merely produce electricity. In their construction, they not only generate greenhouse gas but also damage our terrestrial carbon sinks, the forests and the soils.
India's temperature hit 123.4 degrees on June 1. We need to stop this madness. People are quite capable of initiating mandatory conservation: We have done it many times before in our history. And we need to restrain our runaway military, the world's largest single emitter of greenhouse gases.
It just takes political action!
