New Puzzler Question

You are chatting with an acquaintance, let's call him Larry. Somehow you get to talking about windmills and the rapid advances in renewable technology. Larry is sympathetic but bothered by something. He says to you, Yeah, I understand that these windmills can help to get us off of coal and gas, but they look so ugly! I hate how they are destroying the countryside.

So What would you say to Larry? Try to think of something that will open up the conversation and get him to better understand climate change. Get back to Peterson by September, 15, 2017. You can also email your answers to radio @ or leave a voicemail of 3 minutes or less at 570.483.8194. (+1 if calling from outside the USA.)
