Science: Big Wind Farms Can Make You Hot

Was this part of the Pickens Plan?
Wind farms can affect weather in their immediate locality, raising night-time temperatures on the ground, researchers working in Texas have shown.
They used satellite data to show that land around newly constructed wind farms warmed more than next-door areas.
The change was not identical across all of the wind farms. Having averaged the data, the researchers say the scale of the effect they saw is equivalent to a warming of about 0.72C per decade.
That’s far more warming than global warming, which was supposed to notch us up a degree across centuries, and averaged out to such little warming that they had to re-badge it “climate change” and “climate disruption.”
