One-sided on wind 

Credit:  Bangor Daily News | June 21, 2013 | bangordailynews.com ~~

David Gordon’s June 6 OpEd on wind power, “Why wind energy is right for Aroostook County,” is not the opinion of all. Since he employs people in Oakfield, of course they will listen to him. It means their jobs.

At a tax increment financing meeting where 80 people voted for and 20 against, I had people come up and thank us for speaking against the turbines, including people speaking firsthand from their experience at Lincoln Lakes. Wind is not clean. Google “wind turbines and toxicity” and see why.

Follow the world record with wind power. It skyrockets prices, according to an article in USA Today. Just look at Spain and Germany.

Wind on ridges is intermittent, and turbines destroy forests with clear cutting, as well as making humans ill and murdering birds and bats, according to the organization Save the Eagles International.

More than 700 people signed a petition and many sent letters against the Oakfield Project. They care more about the future of this pristine area – with its two highly ranked historic lakes that were preserved until the 2008 expedited wind law under former Gov. John Baldacci – than the short-term gain of using our government dollars to subsidize a technology that is industrial – not windmills, but turbines. There’s a big difference.

These create audible and low-frequency noise, creating wind turbine syndrome. This project was expanded to taller and more turbines than the original.

Those leasing their property, like Gordon, sing its praises. Thank goodness legislation is presented to oppose the red flashing lights over our lakes and statewide.
