Wind and Prairie Task Force

From the outside looking in, we at the Kansas Wildlife Federation are getting more and more concerned about the Governor’s Wind and Prairie Task Force. The basic mission seems like one of the government “happy talk” showcases - get people together and lock them in a room until there’s consensus. The problem is that where the last of the Tallgrass Prairie is concerned, there isn’t a lot of room. Either you think industrial development’s appropriate or you don’t. Looking at the agenda for the previous two meetings, it looks like the lion’s share of the meeting time is being given to wind power developers.

Want to bet the final product calls for a “balance” between prairie preservation and wind power?
