Endorsing wind project shows poor understanding

I feel that your paper's endorsement of the wind project is based upon an incomplete understanding of its impact upon the western mountains' nature-based tourism.

This letter is in regard to the Kennebec Journal and the Morning Sentinel's endorsement of the wind project near Sugarloaf.

Western Maine's nature-based tourism prospects are being compromised just as the state's initiative gets under way. What is needed, from my point of view, is the vision to connect the Bigelows, Mount Blue, Tumbledown through Mount Abram/Saddleback Jr. to Rangeley in a world-class, multi-use working preserve.

Look at New Zealand's south island million-acre park as a successful economic model.

I live off the grid in Madrid with solar and wind power, and there is little wind energy in the summer. I feel that your paper's endorsement of the wind project is based upon an incomplete understanding of its impact upon the western mountains' nature-based tourism.
