Gipe joins Sierra Club committee

Long time wind advocate Paul Gipe has been named to the national energy committee of the Sierra Club, one of the largest environmental groups in the United States. Gipe, the author of "Wind Energy Comes of Age," a book about the development of modern wind power, was selected in February along with eight others to advise the group's board of directors on energy policy. He is known more recently for challenging the US wind industry, which is mostly centred in California, to become more environmentally conscious in controlling erosion, clearing up abandoned and unsightly wind equipment and more committed to studying the impact of wind plants on wildlife. In this campaign he has worked with Georgette Theotig, of the local Kern County chapter of the Sierra Club, which is based near the Tehachapi Pass wind plants.
