Governor wise on wind  

Credit:  Bangor Daily News, bangordailynews.com 27 June 2011 ~~

I appreciate Gov. LePage’s recent quoted statements regarding the current trend of wind farms being built on our mountain tops which surround many of our beautiful lakes. The state of Maine cannot continue to allow these inefficient and potentially dangerous wind farms to become the only thing we see when we gaze at our beautiful landscapes.

Maine is one of the last states that has not allowed industrial developments to ruin the natural beauty that we all treasure dearly. I am one who has seen firsthand the destruction that these wind farms cause.

I have just discovered that three, 400-foot turbines are located behind my home in an area that once was wild and uninhabited by humans. These turbines are so massive, and as we stood under them, the noise was that of a jet flying overhead, which never stopped.

Our hearts were broken as we looked around us and could only see these turbines and about 15 more in the distance above the lake that we grew up on. It is truly devastating and heartbreaking to see. I urge the governor to please stop these wind people from destroying our wonderful state. It only benefits them and the people that they lease their land to. It is so very sad.

I thank the governor for his words of encouragement and I hope that he will continue to look at this in the future.
