Definite degradation  

Credit:  Bangor Daily News, www.bangordailynews.com 28 December 2010 ~~

I find it very disappointing that the BDN would equate wind turbines with trucks and gas stations when it comes to aesthetics “LePage Right on Wind” (BDN, Dec. 20).

Trucks and gas stations are part of an urban environment and, although they may not enhance the beauty of a town, they certainly don’t detract from it either. Wind turbines on mountain ridges are an entirely different matter. They very definitely degrade what is probably Maine’s greatest asset (apart from its people), its natural beauty.

Perhaps the BDN editorial board need to spend more time outdoors and develop a better appreciation of the environment that makes Maine such a special place.
