Helping to turn a beautiful community into a giant industrial wind factory  

Credit:  Jefferson's Leaning Left | jeffersonleaningleft.blogspot.com 12 August 2012 ~~

Trieste Associates, Inc. is a certified woman-owned business enterprise from Saratoga Springs, NY. They are a consulting service and act as “community organizers” and helped organized the Cape Vincent-Lyme Voters for Wind commonly known as Green Shirts.

Here are a few paragraphs from the Trieste Associates inc.  promotional website:

The cost of failure due to public opposition is why organizing local community supporters is so important. Developers with the foresight to make public outreach a top priority find it well worth the investment. Trieste Associates is uniquely positioned to help companies prepare project developers to build their support base and protect the proposed development from costly delays due to public opposition

Unfortunately, many proposed wind developments are being opposed by organized citizens, generally misinformed neighbors concerned largely about aesthetics, noise, or nuisance.

Trieste Associates believes in taking a grassroots, public education approach to this unfortunate public controversy that has delayed or prevented many proposed wind developments. We believe individuals, when armed with the facts about wind power technology, and site-specific benefits, will understand its value and withdraw their opposition. Our outreach campaigns are designed to inform local decision-makers, identify project champions, and tap into the silent majority of community supporters. Our work is cost-effective, personal, and non-confrontational.

I attended a JCC Earth Week Presentation on industrial wind power by Marion Trieste. She talked a lot about the Cape Vincent, NY projects. She told me and others that wind development brought the people in the town together. There were other “facts” presented that day that I questioned, too.
