Siting of industrial wind turbines poses unacceptable risk to migrating birds

I am writing to express the American Bird Conservancy’s concerns about Apex Clean Energy’s plan to build the Lighthouse Wind energy project in Niagara and Orleans counties. The project proposes to place approximately 70, 600-foot tall turbines along the south shore of Lake Ontario, extending 4.5 miles from the shore along a 12-mile stretch. Renewable energy, including wind energy, is an important way to cut our dependence on fossil fuels and address global climate change. But this “green” revolution has . . . Complete story »

Opinion: Wind farm will further ruin water in town, says Hopkinton resident

Our water is already polluted in Hopkinton…most have no idea because they do not have the money to test it and find out. We have many contaminants from having dug wells, this is certain. What is even more disturbing is the blatant disregard of the disastrous combination of herbicides, pesticides, & fertilizers applied to fields all around residents homes in Hopkinton (the combination of these chemicals has never been tested). Chances are you have a well that has been contaminated . . . Complete story »

Opinion: Town in fight of life over wind farm project, says Parishville woman

In response to “Hopkinton Has Bigger Problems Than Wind,” which appeared in the Feb. 28 – March 6 issue of North Country This Week: Are we living on the same planet? The one where democracy has been defended with so many lives? Have you watched the videos from the meetings? People are serious about defending their rights here. The anti-turbine subsidy scam folks (not anti-wind) are having their rights stolen out from under them for lack of proper representation. They . . . Complete story »

Opinion: New wind law protects residents’ health and safety, Hopkinton town supervisor says

Residents recently received a letter in the mail from Scott McDonald, lead/senior business developer for Avangrid Renewables. Avangrid is the wind development company looking to build the North Ridge Wind Farm in Hopkinton. This letter states specific benefits that the proposed project would bring to our town. I would like to take the time to respond to each of these based on information I have: • They are committed to paying an estimated $750,000 in annual PILOT/Host Community Agreement payments . . .

The problems with wind farms are real

THERE is now simply too much information in the public domain for the wind industry and its many, often ill informed supporters, to continue with any integrity their relentless attacks on the credibility of long suffering wind farm neighbours – people who know with certainty they have been adversely affected by the operation of nearby wind turbines, in many cases having to leave their homes permanently as a result. Problems exist with wind farms, serious problems, long brushed under the . . . Complete story »

We have right to protest wind farms

Recently a person said that if you were not a backer of the wind farms and all of the money it will bring to the county and the schools, that you were doing something that was somehow wrong – part of a bunch of disgruntled people. Well folks, this country was started by disgruntled people. Washington, Jefferson and Franklin were a bunch of protesters. They, to a world power that had all the money in the world, so to speak, protested. . . . Complete story »

Step in it again

There is a concerning and peculiar odor emanating from Lincoln. Sen. Dan Hughes, District 44 Legislator and Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee has frequently shown himself to be a staunch ally of NPPD and big business over and above the citizens of Nebraska as evidenced by his legislative action and/or lack thereof as well as in his monthly columns in the McCook Gazette, his 44th District “hometown” newspaper. After a Feb. 23rd Nebraska Supreme Court decision requiring the Nebraska . . . Complete story »

Turbine builders should stop stalking Savoy

On March 5, The Eagle ran a story titled “Savoy wind project chases deadline to start building.” The headline should have read: “Minuteman Wind continues to chase Savoy to build its wind turbines.” The town has made it abundantly clear that it does not want Minuteman’s wind turbines! On Aug. 24, 2017, angry citizens assembled and shouted their opposition at the town meeting. On Sept. 27, Savoy voters easily defeated the effort to enlarge the size of the blades. And . . .

Moyle and the master plan

This letter is in response to Dave Moyle’s letter to the editor where he complains about how the city of Escanaba did not follow the master plan. Mr. Moyle, who is a county commissioner, also sat on the Delta County Planning Board. During this time he has had no real desire to look at the Delta County Master Plan, when the county chose to approve 36 industrial turbine permits on the Garden Peninsula. In fact, he went against both the . . . Complete story »
