My small town newspaper carried a similar story of wind turbine induced warming. This seems to be viral. They also made similar statements about the warming being 2C whereas carbon warming so far is only 1. As if to say they are like the same thing.

Not!

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.

I thought the theory was that removing energy from the wind slows the horizontal circulation, stagnating the whole atmosphere. That makes as much sense.
