State failing duty in allowing wind towers  

Credit:  Burlington Free Press, www.burlingtonfreepress.com 6 December 2011 ~~

There is something far more deadly than the spruce budworm, the emerald ash borer, and acid rain that are destroying the forests of our green mountains. I am perplexed trying to understand why various state agencies will spend millions of tax dollars to combat worms and beetles, to ensure the health of our deer herd, and to ensure the health of our rivers, lakes, ponds and wetlands. And yet, there is hardly anyone in fish and wildlife, barely a state senator or state representative, and definitely neither the governor nor the judicial system, who is willing to stop the current culprit.

The governor, his administration and his international corporate chums are rapidly destroying our natural resources in the name of public good for projects that are poorly planned and economically unsound. With minimum regard for our natural resources – resources that our state agencies are empowered to protect on our behalf – they plan to develop additional industrial wind turbine sites across the state.

Stop the further destruction of our finite resources due to corporate greed. Let the people of Vermont – not the governor and the appointed public service board members – decide the fate of our natural resources. Please contact your elected officials and ask them to end this folly!
