"Wind turbines are an icon for the energy transition and the subject of heated debate in Washington. They've been mocked by prominent members of the GOP, including former President Donald Trump, who recently called wind the "worst form of energy."

"But Weatherford Mayor Mike Brown told CNN that for the landowners in Western Oklahoma, the sound of a huge metal blade cutting through the atmosphere is "the sound of money."

"Wind power isn't political in this part of the country. The two Oklahoma counties that Traverse spans — Blaine and Custer — voted overwhelmingly for Trump in the 2020 election."
----------------------------------------------------------------

so it sounds like wind power is a much needed economic boost for landowners, workers, school
districts, etc, in the Plains States. But that doesn't stop them from overwhelmingly voting
for Trump, despite Trump's utter disdain for wind power.

This is reminiscent of Trump in 2015 stating that Michigan autoworkers either work for
less money, or their jobs should be shipped down South, or to Mexico. And the
majority of autoworkers that I know voted for Trump. ( I know a lot of UAW members, they
did not all vote for Trump, some hold him to the same level of disdain as I do ).
