Wind farms aren’t good stewardship of farm land  

Credit:  Letters to the Editor | Bucyrus Telegraph-Forum | April 30, 2022 | www.bucyrustelegraphforum.com ~~

My Dad was an Air Force fighter pilot, and he served in Korea and Vietnam. While others were buying luxuries with their combat pay, Dad was buying a farm in Crawford County, Ohio, with his pay. That farm has been in the family for nearly five generations, and it is his legacy to us.

It was Dad’s greatest desire to be a good steward to the land, and he was recognized as such. Good land stewardship means ensuring that the basic elements for a healthy ecosystem are nurtured. This means healthy soil, clean water and air, as well as biological diversity. It is well established that turbines cause problems that are not limited to relentless noise, death of wildlife, flicker within homes near them, slashed property values, ruined water tables and wells, damage to roadways and crops. Wind turbines pose serious health risks to humans, wildlife and livestock. Enormous amounts of copper, steel and other rare elements are required to build these monstrous turbines.

These complex ecological consequences, caused by industrial turbines, breech every element of good stewardship of the land, and the legacy I wish to leave behind. I do not want to see our family farm reduced to an industrial wasteland.

Pamela Vann, Bucyrus
