What is lost on Lowell Mountain  

Credit:  Rutland Herald via Mountain Talk 11 August 2012 ~~

There are a lot of things that we, the opponents of industrial turbines in Vermont, do not like:

We do not like to lose our sacred mountaintops to explosives.

We do not like to lose 100 acres of previously unmarred forest to clear cutting.

We do not like to lose our bear and moose habitat to a seven-mile-long over 100-feet-wide crane path.

We do not like to lose our bats, two on the endangered species list, to the blades of the turbines.

We do not like to lose our songbirds, whose habitats were destroyed.

We do not like to lose our pure mountain water, compromised by inadequate stormwater “management.”

We do not like to lose our rural peace and quiet to the sounds of the turbines.

We do not like to lose the darkness of our night to nine sets of blinking red lights.

We do not like to lose our views of the mountains as they have been for millennia.

We do not like to lose our community.

We do not like to lose our constitutional rights.

We do not like to lose our Vermont.

Green Mountain Power’s Robert Dostis, leader of external affairs and customer relations, complained that opponents to the Lowell industrial turbine project just do not like to lose.

He is absolutely correct.
