Letter: Wind turbines  

Credit:  New Bern Sun Journal | Feb 4, 2018 | www.newbernsj.com ~~

It is imperative that the public understand the constraints that have historically prevented the members of the military from speaking publicly about their concerns with the wind power industry.

As a county commissioner representing Pamlico County, I was part of a military/civilian committee of elected officials from four counties and towns that met with the commanding officer of Cherry Point Marine Air Base several times a year. All the commanding officers were able to speak of their grave concerns to us, as it was not a public forum.

The commanders were not permitted to speak publicly due to formal obstructions put on them by a former federal policy.

We were told again and again that “wind farms” created issues with training their aircraft. We have have had to speak for the military as they cannot candidly speak for themselves.

The wind industry is very, very powerful, well funded, enormously subsidized and has well paid representatives traversing the country representing their interests at meetings and writing and reporting glowing articles on their industry.

The public must be told that there is much more to this story than the glowing picture that is presented by the majority of the media.

Christine Mele, Pamlico County Commissioner (retired)
