Wind power remains leading climate solution; media misreports research on local temperatures

"This study says nothing about wind energy and global climate, and casts no doubt on all the other studies that find wind power is one of the best ways to address climate change. The study merely examined the effect of local air mixing at the site of a wind farm, which has nothing to do with climate because no heat or heat-trapping gases are being added to the atmosphere.

"All scientific studies including this one have found that any impact wind turbines may have on local temperature readings is trivially small, and localized only to an area immediately around a wind farm project.

"We caution against people with an agenda who may try to misconstrue this study for their own purposes."
