The turbines are just mixing any night time air that may be warmer and has risen, with the cooler ground level air and dew. The average temp for the area is really just the same.
Yeah, that was a dumb article, even if true. The turbines don't create warming, only mixing of warm and cool air, which is a good thing. I'd rather nights carry a higher average temperature. Maybe that will reduce the energy requirements to keep homes warm at night.
