Tru Greene, a song from St. Lucie County, Fla.

Musicians Against Wind Turbines

A new anti-wind turbine song from Florida was done by a group calling themselves “Musicians Against Wind Turbines” who put together a band called Tru Greene to oppose a wind farm on the incredibly environmentally sensitive Hutchinson Island (which is the nesting ground of 5 species of endangered or threatened sea turtles and a migratory bird pathway as well as the most biodiverse estuary in North America).

The song includes local politics – FP&L is Florida Power & Light, the
Company who wants to build the turbines. Chris Craft and Joe Smith are
two of the St. Lucie County Commissioners, and Anderson is county manager. It was Chris Craft’s idea that not only should the county let FPL put turbines on its own land, but they should use the public parks as well. [At the end of a meeting on Mar. 4, 2008, Craft stated that he is now against erecting wind turbines on Hutchinson Island.]
