We must find solutions to energy issues [UPDATED]Published 10:04am Wednesday, January 2, 2013 Updated 12:07pm Wednesday, January 2, 2013
Wade Underwood, I was wondering what you people were smoking or drinking when you were floating down the Otter Tail River and imagining all the things that you were seeing.
How long ago was this any away? You should check all of your facts before writing about it in the paper.
One of the facts you should check is how reliable wind power is and what happens when the heat in the summer or deep cold sets in and the wind stops. Then what do you think happens to the power grid? What do you think the people in charge of the grid have to do to replace hundreds or thousands of mega watts of electricity. instead of dreaming about what you and your friends think you saw.
Why not look into how old our power grid system is and what needs to be done to rebuild it to handle the new sources of power coming on to the system wind, gas power plants or solar, and let’s not forget nuclear power that everyone is opposed to. Now quit dreaming and help find solutions to the problems.
