Check the history on wind energy development

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This quote by George Santayana appears on the frieze at the entrance of the main library at the University of Colorado. It has been widely used in variation by presidents, economists, generals, etc., who want to point out past mistakes so we don’t repeat them.

Wind companies DO NOT want us to check out their history. They DO NOT want us to find out how they come into communities with smooth talkers and slick lawyers. We are only to believe what they tell us. Only their lawyers and paid experts have the right answers. There’s no need to ask questions. For billions of dollars in Production Tax Credits, they’ll give the only answers we need. They don’t give a rat’s tail about our health and safety, property values, ground water quality, wildlife or just doing the right thing.

There is more than a 25-year history of how they operate. They have left a trail. They divide, devastate and wreak havoc on families, communities and wildlife. People from all across the U.S., Canada and Europe are speaking out about the negative, life-changing impacts.

Wind companies’ “experts” and lawyers bribe, belittle, bully and call people liars who have suffered because of misplaced turbines. At one meeting, a lawyer said wind turbine syndrome is all in their head. His statement was truer than he realized.

A Colorado psychiatrist has said WTS can be compared to post-traumatic stress disorder. Not all people suffer the effects, but if you do it is very real.

Do the research. Every day there are new articles from concerned citizens who want to warn us not to be duped into what they were years ago. We have a history to check out and they did not.

They only had the unscrupulous wind companies’ words.

When the governor and our representatives build a home and live among the turbines, I will put a little more credence in what they tell us. Say green energy and money in the same sentence and people go brain dead.

Pull your heads out of the sand. Turbines are neither green or harmless. Do the research!
