Windmills destroy beauty of Waimea  

Credit:  Honolulu Star-Advertiser | 26 August 2012 ~~

I understand the need for sustainable energy on our little island but I ask at what cost?

The massive wind turbines popping up all over Kahuku and Haleiwa have affected many view corridors and a most valuable resource – the aesthetic beauty of the country. How were some of these ugly wind turbines allowed to be erected in areas that distress the view corridors at Waimea Bay, Valley and Puu o Mahuka Heiau?

Do the landowners care more about profit than sustaining the beauty of the historic and culturally significant areas of Waimea Bay, Waimea Valley and Puu o Mahuka Heiau?

These gigantic wind turbines must come down and be moved to viable locations that won’t affect Waimea, a truly priceless and culturally sensitive site.
