Wind farms are ruining Oregon  

Credit:  www.statesmanjournal.com 11 December 2011 ~~

In 1998 Governor John Kitzhaber called on Oregonians to be good stewards of the land and to “envision the future of our landscape for generations yet to come.” (Jan. 27, 1998 Proclamation for Land Use Planning Month)

He recognized that “Oregonians share a long-standing tradition of respect and reverence for the land; and the way in which we use our land profoundly affects the beauty and bounty of our state and the livability of our communities.”

How can the Governor say this in 1998 and today support the extension of Renewable Energy Production Tax Credits (HR 3307) which serve to finance the expansion of industrial wind farms which are ruining the scenic beauty and livability of our state

In 2010 tax expenditures for renewables were $8.2 billion. Natural economics, not tax credits must determine the feasibility of a project.

— Linda M. Bond, Union
