Then the bottom line, my son …  

Credit:  Bennington Banner | www.benningtonbanner.com 13 June 2012 ~~

If we allow our ridgelines to be blasted and turned into industrial zones, fully nullifying Vermont’s principle asset – its beautiful landscape …

If we permit the (permanent?) destruction of our ridgelines which are habitat vital to birds, wildlife and human recreation …

If we sacrifice the health, lives and property values of large numbers of residents who live in proximity to these turbines …

If we know that it is now a recognized fact that they are not economically viable (except for a very few) …

If we now know that large wind turbines have a short life and are subject to fire and mechanical failure …

If authorities like Velco say that currently and for the foreseeable future there is an abundance of power in Vermont as well as all of New England …

If we know that government subsidies, tax credits, etc., are coming to an end, resulting in the inevitable financial failure of many wind power companies …

If communities surrounding our ridgelines are overwhelmingly opposed … then the bottom line is: How could anyone in authority be so unconscionable and approve these projects?
