The article focuses on the possible effect of the plan of Wyoming to install wind turbines on the sage grouse habitat. The plan is said to produce 20% wind energy that will be used by the country by 2030. The production of turbines by Anschutz Corp. in the country would generate 2000-3000 megawatts energy and will produce less gas that can contribute to the envisioned climate change. It notes also that the project could not assess its effect on sage grouse and is feared to cause their extinction.
