Vermont is a beautiful, unspoiled place to live. This is so partly because of our tough stand on height of buildings, no billboards, and keeping the quality of life for wildlife as well as residents.
However, now the quality of our lives and that of generations to come is being jeopardized. Our health, homes and that of our wildlife is in danger.
Why? Windmills. They are a 493-foot atrocity on top of our pristine ridges. They will blast with many tons of dynamite, wiping out countless dens, burrows, and homes to our most precious wildlife. This ridge is home to the bald eagle, bears, bobcats, and flora such as lady slipper, jack-in-the-pulpit, and other endangered species.
The vibrations, shadows and flashing lights cause equilibrium problems, seizures and other health and psychological issues.
The blasting on a shale rock could cause many family’s water supplies to be rerouted or diminished.
Please don’t let this happen to our state. Stop these carpetbaggers. Recently Steve Eisenberg, CEO of Reunion Power, published in the Rutland Herald an article insinuating that Bill Greene was a liar and embellisher of facts. I guess Mr. Eisenberg doesn’t know Vermonters as well as he thinks (a previous article called Vermonters uninformed and stupid). Bill is a Vermonter, taking time to get the facts, weighing personal gain versus public and nature’s good. He made an informed decision and shared information in an honest forthright presentation. Mr. Eisenberg – this is the Vermont way. We don’t rush into things. We believe our God-given gifts are to be cherished and protected. “It is ultimately the land and the people who nurtured its journey that encapsulates Vermont’s essence of place in its authentic, unedited and endearing self.” (Vermont website)
