Proposed wind farm near Minidoka NHS another balancing act between preservation & green energy

A proposal now open to public comment that could allow for up to 400 wind turbines to be erected between Minidoka National Historic Site and Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve in Idaho raises a question of whether they would intrude on the somber setting at Minidoka, where more than 10,000 Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War II.

The project represents a balancing act for the Biden administration, which wants to bolster the country's ability to generate clean energy but also has spoken out about the shameful incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II.
