The efforts to find clean and renewable energy have led many to speculate that Wyoming has more than just fossil fuel energy resources. While we do have a climate that produces an abundance of wind, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal says it may not make economic sense at this time.
A recent symposium on wind energy development in Wyoming was so popular that attendance had to be limited due to space concerns.
If you’d like to hear Freudenthal’s complete interview, tune in to Public Pulse Wednesday morning just after 9 on News-Talk 930 KROE.
In other news from the Governor’s office, Freudenthal was disappointed by a Federal judge’s decision to put the Yellowstone grizzly bears under the protection of the Endangered Species Act again. Freudenthal and the State were concerned that Wyoming populations were getting too large. There is a similar case pending in an Idaho U.S. District Court, and Freudenthal expects the Fish and Wildlife Service to defend their 2007 decision delisting the grizzly bear.
