Wind turbine ads are full of spin  

Credit:  The Windsor Star, www.windsorstar.com 25 August 2011 ~~

There seems to be a basic issue that is getting very confused. People seem to be accepting the illusions from questionable advertising by governments and big industrial businesses of what a product appears to be and not the reality of what it really is and does.

Take industrial wind turbines, for example. Advertising pictures of them along with the catchy buzz words used, conjures up ideas that then misdirect you into believing things that the government and wind industry want you to believe, similar to tactics used by a magician at a magic show.

Advertisements promote illusions of how benign they are, totally an asset to our wellbeing and how friendly government and the wind industry is.

The reality is: They cause many harmful health issues to humans. Why else would industrial wind turbine farms located around prisons have to be turned off at night?

The wind industry buys up homes troubled by industrial wind turbines and a gag is placed on former owners from talking about it. If you question or express opposition, then intimidation tactics are used, like name-calling, lawsuit threats, even government here in North America saying they will crush the people opposing wind.

More money can now be made by having to build lots of new polluting backup fossil fuelburning electrical generation plants because of wind being so unreliable. Industrial wind turbines are too costly and too dangerous to have them in and around cities, plus there’s huge money savings to have them in the rural setting.

Farmers just happen to have the cheap land to put them on. Also, many of all those big numbers of new jobs being claimed move around and restart from province to province, state to state and country to country.

If only the illusions of industrial wind turbines were true, then their reality would have no illusions.
