    ¿Por qué protestamos?

    Two photo-rich flyers. “No protestamos por todo, protestamos porque el momento historico lo requiere, porque las circustancias lo ameritan, porque no podemos callar ante el abuso y el atropello. Protestamos por justicia, por dignidad. Mientras otros callan y se olvidan que la lucha comunitaria es vital para que enfrentar con firmeza los problemas que nos afectan nosotros protestamos.” –José F. Saez Cintron (We are not protesting for nothing, we are protesting because the historical moment requires it, because circumstances merit . . .

    Wind energy — do you believe everything that you've been told?

    For 25 years we’ve been told what a significant contribution wind energy could and is making to our energy supply. Since most people have little knowledge of how the electrical system works, they are being misled as to the benefits, merits and capabilities of wind power, unfortunately, most have believed what they have been told. As a homeowner in the Pass for 30 years, and familiar with the wind patterns, I had reservations as to all the amounts of power . . .

    What a scam!

    Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson is currently helping foreign interests in their efforts to locate wind factories along the most precious parts of our Texas Coast. If citizens like you don’t wake up and contact your elected officials soon the coast will be lost to wind factories. Construction of the first 84 Mitsubishi turbines is scheduled to begin early in ’08 on the Kenedy Ranch north of Port Mansfield. Each turbine will rise 413 feet high and have a blade diameter . . .

    Why giant corporate industrial wind is a terrible idea for Vermont

    As a writer and photographer, my mission is to promote knowledge and understanding about the earth and its natural history through words, images and ideas that convey a passion for nature and a sense of wonder about our planet. My most recent book is Wild New England, a Celebration of Our Region’s Natural Beauty. My next book, to be released this spring, is Thoreau’s New England. That’s the Thoreau of Walden fame, who wrote: “In wildness is the preservation of . . .

    Improper Industrial Windplant Siting Threatens Pennsylvania Ridgetops

    By Stan Kotala The US Fish & Wildlife Service’s guidance document regarding “wind farm” location states: Avoid placing turbines in areas where there are endangered species. Avoid placing turbines in bird migration pathways. Avoid placing turbines near known bat hibernation, breeding, and maternity colonies. Avoid fragmenting large, contiguous tracts of wildlife habitat. As you can see, siting industrial windplants on central Pennsylvania’s forested ridges is in violation of the criteria for acceptable locations according to the US Fish & Wildlife . . .

    Words, carelessly used, quickly lose meaning. “NIMBY” is an acronym for “Not In My Back Yard.” It’s often used as a pejorative by those attempting to make environmentalists appear to be self-serving moral relativists; people who change their values to suit their personal situations and interests. Even the slightest appearance of self interest can trigger the “NIMBY” epithet. The environmentalist who attempts to deny the charge will look increasingly ridiculous as he goes through the clumsy process of explaining the . . .
