    Gone with the Wind: Impacts of industrial wind turbines on our region and America’s public lands

    Over 50 industrial-scale “renewable” energy projects may soon change forever the face of our region in San Diego’s East County and neighboring Imperial County. Many are on formerly protected federal lands. Nationally, 370 million acres of public lands are targeted for big renewable energy projects – twice the size of Texas! East County Magazine editor Miriam Raftery has prepared a presentation for organizations that wish to educate their members about the impacts of these projects – and the alternatives.

    Realities and Legalities – Other Perspectives on Industrial Wind Energy

    Dave & Stephanie Hulthen and their four children live in the home pictured below. It was their dream farmhouse in rural Dekalb County, Illinois, until the wind turbines moved in next door. Today the Hulthen family lives surrounded by thirteen 40-story turbines within one mile of their house, the two closest a mere 1400 feet away. When the realities of living with their new neighbors became clear, they launched their blog, Our Life with Dekalb Turbines, to record and share . . .
