In the past two or three weeks, The Sun has printed at least three letters dealing with the Somerset County wind farm ("Wind project raises serious safety, health concerns," Dec. 6). They differed so much in content that it was almost impossible to see any commonality, except that none addressed climate change and sea level rise. This is, to me, of primary concern.
If we assume climate change and sea level rise are happening, we see that Somerset County and the surrounding areas on the Chesapeake Bay are vulnerable to extreme damage. If climate change and sea level rise are not happening, there is no reason to build the wind farm.
If we do not accept the findings of government scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that we must take steps to prevent massive destruction by climate change, how can we accept the findings of government scientists at Patuxent River Naval Air Station that we must take steps to prevent steps to prevent massive destruction by foreign enemies? Select use of scientific evidence is the tool of fools and charlatans.
