Where are opposers for wind farm?  

Credit:  By RICHARD MAKUCH, Observer Today | February 9, 2015 | observertoday.com ~~

There is a proposal for a wind farm in Chautauqua County. The proposal is approximately seventy wind turbines over a 40,000-acre area. These turbines will brandish 330 feet of turbine hubs.

The wind developer is from, of all places, Pittsburgh, Pa. We all are familiar with people from Pittsburgh, especially in the Dunkirk area.

With all the land in the state of Pennsylvania, why did these Pittsburgh people pick Chautauqua County in New York state? Let’s take a closer look at this proposal for a wind farm. Forty thousand acres of our countryside with beautiful trees and animals that live there. After they will ruin our land by cutting down trees, our county will be a wasteland.

This idea will be a fiasco. Endangering our wildlife and trees that can never be replaced. These turbines will kill birds and destroy everything the turbines replace. Again, why New York state and Chautauqua County? This whole thing will be an eyesore of 40,000 acres. These turbines are huge and could be dangerous.

My next question is where are the environment people? These people were so concerned about our NRG plant. These same people were so concerned about the birds and the possible expansion of the Peace Bridge. The same gang that doesn’t want fracking. but it’s OK to ruin our countryside and endanger birds and wildlife.

Where are these people? Why are they not getting involved in this project to stop Chautauqua County from being a wasteland? I guess they pick and choose what they think is more important, like stopping the expansion of the Peace Bridge, and shutting down the NRG plant. Where is their awareness of this fiasco in Chautauqua County? Don’t they care that this project is a major problem for those involved in the environment, more than anything that has happened in the past? So where are these liberals, do-gooders, bleeding hearts? They are nowhere to be found. It looks like we might have another airfield in our county. God help us all.
