Get the facts about wind energy

Remember the story about the Trojan horse?

The Trojans thought the horse was on their doorstep as a sign of peace and good will, until they opened the door.

I want to compare “free and clean industrial wind energy” to that same scenario and refer you to articles on our website www.greenwichneighborsunited.com.

What wind developers tell us:

• Wind power is good for the community, bringing jobs and income for the school system.

They don’t tell you the jobs are temporary, lasting as long as the construction does.

The money returned to the community, (taxes for the schools and lease payments) is only a small proportion of the money that is removed (tax abatements, production tax credits and other tax incentives).

• Bringing these monsters into a community actually divides friends and neighbors forever. None of these are a good deal or promote good will.

What they won’t tell you:

•That property values go down. (See article “Wind Industry Big Lies” by British journalist James Delingpole.)

• The killing of birds and bats leads to an increased use of pesticides in order to control the increase of harmful insects. Aerial spraying may no longer be feasible because of flight and application risks.

• By improper placement near homes, some of your neighbors will most likely suffer the effects of infra sound similar to that at the Shirley Wind project in Wisconsin, which has been declared a health hazard, by the Brown County Board of Health.

• American Energy Association reports it will guarantee your electricity rate will go up just like it has in all areas where wind energy has been accepted. See their post: “Electricity Prices Soaring in Top Wind Power States.”

• There is tremendous amount of toxic waste caused by extracting the rare earth elements used in building the magnets which are used in each and every turbine. (See the article on the devastation of China by Simon Parry.)

Oh, the hidden surprises within the Trojan horse.

Don’t be fooled, before you open the door to wind energy’s claims, get all of the facts.
