Recommend Governor Kelly and the Legislature Reconsider Wind Power in Kansas

I recommend Governor Laura Kelly and the
Kansas Legislature reconsider wind energy in our state.
Kansas gets nearly 40% of its electricity from wind. To me, that is dangerously high. Now, Gov. Kelly wants to add more? Given catastrophe in Texas has proven the point of wind's critics -- that it cannot be depended upon when it is needed the most -- I would urge the State of Kansas to quickly reconsider. 

Wind energy has a use, especially in very dry areas. However, 40% seems plenty. The state should declare a moratorium on new construction.
