No different from Northern Pass towers  

Credit:  Letter: No different from Norther Pass towers | Concord Monitor | October 4, 2013 | www.concordmonitor.com ~~

Wind turbines are no different from the Northern Pass transmission towers. I object to both on aesthetic grounds. They mar the landscape. They ruin views. They are a barrier between beauty and those who wish to admire and appreciate that beauty.

I care deeply about the environment. I have supported this cause in a number of ways for the past 40 years. The reason I became involved and the primary reason I stay involved is a love of nature and the visual gifts it brings to humanity. We are all stewards of the Earth, charged with valuing and protecting it in the present, for the future. I do not support any project, whether it be considered “green” or not, which significantly alters the treasured vistas we inherited from those who came before us. Being an environmental advocate can mean many things. To me it means defending the beauty around us from those who would defile it. Natural, by definition, does not mean man-made. Towers of any kind do not enhance the natural environment.
