Respond to one of the following prompts:

1. According to science, wind farms are fairly benign (and certainly less harmful to the environment than other forms of energy like burning coal, which causes climate change and creates harmful air pollution (Links to an external site.)). Given this, why do you think people oppose wind farms so strongly? 

2. Like any technology, wind farms are not without their problems (though these problems are fairly well understood). Find 2 actual issues with grid-scale wind power. For each problem, discuss at least 1 policy or technological solution.

3. What would you do to stop the proliferation of wind farm misinformation? What potential problems or ethical dilemmas could there be with your solution?

For any of these prompts, you should support your answer with links and citations. You must have at least one citation, but for full credit, you should plan to have at least 2. You should also connect your response to at least one other concept you’ve learned in the class, ideally from this week.
