Do no harm

Harm is defined as causing hurt, injury, damage, and moral wrong. That is exactly what is happening with the building of wind turbines in populated areas such as Henry County. The topic is not political. On the contrary, it is basically based on money. The land owners potentially stand to receive a fair amount of money by leasing their land to wind companies.

Some are suggesting that newly proposed countywide zoning would have excluded the turbines or minimized any harm. They are wrong.
