Wind farms can cause climate change, according to new research, that shows for the first time the new technology is already pushing up temperatures.
Satellite data over a large area in Texas, that is now covered by four of the world’s largest wind farms, found that over a decade the local temperature went up by almost 1C as more turbines are built.
Also, it is much smaller than the estimated change caused by other factors such as man made global warming.
Err, no, it ain’t. The wind farms manage 1oC per decade, or in a decade whichever: I believe AGW is held to be responsible for 0.8 0C since the industrial revolution so far?
Anyway, the real issue is of course that we’ll have to revisit the temperature record from any measuring stations that have had wind famrs built around them and then adjust those records for that local and known effect, won’t we?
