This reflects that until the government sponsored PhD sees it, it isn't real. Why do these people routinely ignore the observations of people, often over decades, whose livelihood depends on the land? Pretty stupid, if you ask me.
I hypothesized about this sort of thing a few years back and every responder on FR couldnt believe I was remotely serious.
I must not have responded then. The energy which is converted to electricity comes from weather systems. I do not pretend to know what a significant level of energy reduction would be, and I suspect that it would vary depending on the strength of the weather system, but at some point it should have an effect--especially on local weather patterns. If the localized phenomneon of an urban heat island can affect local climate, an extensive windfarm should be able to do the same.
