Environmental Studies Students Published on Wind Energy

Students Ricky Chamberlain, Patrick Hennessey, Sara Forward, Anne McGuinnes, Martha Genao, Ted Wilson, Malik Wakefield, and Mike Krantz collectively wrote an editorial on the South Bristol wind project, that ran in the Nov. 30 Canandaigua Daily Messenger. They are part of an environmental-studies senior seminar called Senior Integrative Experience, taught by Tom Drennen, assistant professor of economics, and studied the South Bristol wind project.

“We hope that the town of South Bristol seizes the opportunity to develop a wind farm, contributing to the ongoing attempt to enhance New York state’s renewable energy resources,” they wrote in the article, “Something’s in the wind — and it will mean clean, renewable energy here”.

An opposing viewpoint, “Something’s in the wind — but at huge cost to peace and beauty” was written by Terrence R. Docteur, a resident of Bristol, and ran opposite the piece. (This essay may be found after the students’ essay at the above link).
