Letters to the editor
Writer urges Supervisors
to vote for wind turbines
I am writing to urge the Board of Supervisors to reverse the decision of
the Zoning Commission to deny the building of a wind farm.
Electricity produced from coal produces 2.5 pounds of carbon dioxide per
kilowatt generated. If it is produced from natural gas 1.5 pounds of carbon
dioxide is produced. The average carbon put in the atmosphere by the United
States from nuclear, coal, hydro, natural gas and wind, etc, is 1.37 pounds
In January we (Neher Acres) put into operation a 10 KW wind turbine. It
is projected to produce 22,000 kilowatts of electricity a year without putting
any carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Multiplying 22,000 kilowatts by 1.37
pounds of carbon dioxide produced equals 30,140 pounds of carbon dioxide. Lurene Fink Neff and Ron Kaufmann were graduates of the Beaman
This means that our small turbine is saving the atmosphere from 15 ton of High School Class of 1936.
CO2 a year.
Scientists tell us that a safe level for humans on earth is 350 parts per
million of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The level is presently 392 and
rising about 2 percentage points each year.
Beaman High School
The atmosphere will be saved 15 tons of carbon dioxide with a small tur-
bine. Just think how much can be saved with a wind farm.
