Very generous of you, but some people might counter that MLW is over-saturated already with such "comedy."
we've seen it over and over and over again here on MLW... this was really following a classic pattern in that large mainstream outlets simply passed on the original inane misinforming articles that started, per norm, in the British tabloids. It really ramped up big time when the usual suspects, the likes of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, got a hold of it... and from there it cascaded across the internet. In that regard... MLW member Peeves was actually ahead of the bizarro North American misinformation campaign. MLW member Peeves ignorantly went one step further by crafting a thread title purposely intended to denigrate; his, oh so juvenile, "Hey Dalton, Suzuki, and Al baby". But, of course, as usually is the case, the misinformation campaign gets the big first and sweeping bite of public attention... the follow-ups decrying the lack of proper mainstream reporting and the misinformation never get the same penetration. Same ole, same ole!
this particular study isn't particularly unique, or 'first-leading' - a quick check shows other studies as far back to 2004 with like findings. Of note, this 2010 study (abstract) published in PNAS: Impacts of wind farms on surface air temperatures
Utility-scale large wind farms are rapidly growing in size and numbers all over the world. Data from a meteorological field campaign show that such wind farms can significantly affect near-surface air temperatures. These effects result from enhanced vertical mixing due to turbulence generated by wind turbine rotors. The impacts of wind farms on local weather can be minimized by changing rotor design or by siting wind farms in regions with high natural turbulence. Using a 25-y-long climate dataset, we identified such regions in the world. Many of these regions, such as the Midwest and Great Plains in the United States, are also rich in wind resources, making them ideal candidates for low-impact wind farms.
again... once more, with feeling!
hey (MLW member) Peeves... suck it up and do the right thing... change your thread title - save yourself further embarrassment, hey?
