A Fresh Wind is Blowing
March 23, 2010
Michigan’s Governor Granholm wants green businesses for Michigan such as wind turbines to produce energy and solar panels. These new industries could employ many people who have lost their jobs due to the faltering automotive industry.
In West Michigan, Muskegon and Grand Haven would be good places to construct wind turbines off shore in Lake Michigan. This would produce clean energy. Coal burning power plants deposit mercury in the water and that is ingested by fish. Sport fishing is very popular, but no one wants to eat mercury laden fish.
And no one wants global warming caused by all the emissions in the air.
