Pendleton County Mobilizes — December 7th meeting 

A visit to neighboring Grant County will show how serious a threat wind projects are becoming for Pendleton. Last weekend I stood on the observation tower at Spruce Knob and saw 22 wind turbines on the Mt. Storm project, turbines are also visible from the Germany Valley overlook. If you are concerned about this or have other concerns, plan to attend the meeting Friday December 7 at 7 pm at the Library.

WHEN: Friday December 7 at 7 pm
WHERE: Pendelton County Public Library Lower Level

Do your realize that had the PSC Commissioners not used wisdom in their June 22, 2007 decision to refuse to permit Liberty Gap’s application the project would most likely be near completion. Up to 50 huge turbines more than 400 feet tall would now sit atop Jack Mountain from the WV-VA state line northward to Moatstown. The construction would have taken place during the driest summer local residents can recall.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: what would be the affect of the removal of up to 20,000 gallons of water a day from our streams for about 4 to 6 months as indicated in Liberty Gap’s application. How would our county and downstream farms, residences, fisherman, wild life and others tolerate the removal of such a quantity of precious stream water?

While wind project claim to be “green” they continue to dismiss their own environmental impacts as justifiable to save the planet from global warming.

You simply cannot have it both ways. If you care about the planet that much then you will also be sensitive enough to ensure that your industrial projects minimize their own footprints. The lesson of the past hundred years of abusive mining projects show that fragile mountain wilderness areas while they may be windy compared to others locations, are by definition the worst places to locate industrial projects of any kind.
