On Monday, the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) will be holding a major event in East Lansing. Inside the building, the well-financed wind advocates will no doubt have a love fest. They will sing the praises of wind energy and promote, promote, promote the idea that Michigan should expand its current wind energy (they’ll call it renewable energy) quota above the current 10 percent level to 30 percent or higher.
Outside of the building the meagerly-financed wind energy opponents will be picketing the event. They’ve planned their protest in the hope of getting the news media to cover more than one side of the issue.
