Icy Beauty - Polar Paintings from the 1800's

Aurora Australis, 1908, George Mattson

Adventurers in the 1800's saw the Arctic and Antarctic as remote and harsh, though beautiful places. The South and North Poles were the furthest frontiers of the day and were sought by scores of early explorers. Among those early explorers were artists who preserved the rugged beauty of the poles. Fortunately, we have their images as an artistic record from the days before Climate Change.

Training for Windy Work in Tucumcari

Wind Turbine Under Construction

New Mexico is windy in the spring. The wide open plains of Eastern New Mexico are even windier. Power utilities are putting up wind farms across New Mexico and the Great Plains to take advantage of all of the free wind. One question hasn't been answered yet - Who will operate and maintain these turbines? Mesalands Community College in Tucumcari, NM is establishing the North American Wind Research and Training Center to educate Wind Turbine Technicians to fill that need.
