Rescind the AEZ

First off, I’d like to ask everyone to join me in thanking and congratulating Commissioner Mike Kerschner on his huge victory Tuesday night, where Seneca County showed that no matter how much dirty money the outside big wind lobby spends, we, the people of Seneca County make the decisions here, not them! The next thing I would like to ask the audience to do is to please stand if you oppose the industrial wind turbine projects that are proposed for . . . Complete story »

Take a look at land-use plan

In order to promote positive economic growth countywide, there should be a cooperative understanding between all agencies, citizens and public officials so all parties can be involved in new industry proposals. Economic development must be considered within a land-use framework in order to have maximum benefit on the regional and local economies while having minimum negative impacts on the environment, service capacity and character of the area. Furthermore, the use of economic development agreements through intergovernmental coordination should be promoted. . . . Complete story »

Letter: Engineer opposes wind turbines

As a mechanical engineer with 15 years experience in wind energy, I oppose installation of industrial wind power in Western New York, specifically the Farmersville proposed Invenergy wind farm. Wind turbines exert large disturbances into the fluid conditions of the air, like a boat wake extending downwind, many rotor diameters, from the turbines. There is violence involved with wind power. The speed of the blade tips is approximately 160 mph. The reality of a runaway wind turbine is a terrifying . . . Complete story »

Wind turbines a menace to wildlife

David Bellamy in his letter (Western Mail, November 8) is spot on in his assessment regarding proliferation of wind turbines and the industrialisation of the landscape. The arguments are self-evident to any rural dweller (no, not Nimbys) but it seems main pro lobby hails from urban areas where strangely they do not suffer the imposition of clean air policies! Carwyn Jones in First Minister’s Question Time on November 7 responded to a question regarding clean air standards not being met . . . Complete story »

Place moratorium on wind farms

The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) should protect the citizens of rural South Dakota by placing a moratorium on wind turbine projects until the state legislature can amend SDCL 43-13-24. Nearly all the counties in the state are using a standard suggested by the PUC 10 years ago in 2008. At that time the wind turbines were roughly half the size they are now. The PUC document was abolished in 2017, but it is still in use today. A . . . Complete story »

Industrial wind farms threaten rural quality of life

In the local debate over bringing wind farms to this county many issues have been considered: safety, health, property values, property rights, financial benefits for the community, relative effectiveness of wind power, contributions to the fight against global warming, impact on local wildlife. All these are serious and worthy considerations, but ultimately what should matter most to all of us is quality of life. What defines quality of life? If you live in an urban or suburban setting, you probably . . . Complete story »

Arguments stacked against windfarm

The Powys landscape, of rolling hills dotted with farms, its winding lanes lined with mature trees and hedgerows, its sylvan meadows, is a timeless land of outstanding beauty that could still appear to be in the early twentieth century. Which is why so many visitors love coming for its tranquil idyll. The recent decision, therefore, by the environment minister to grant approval to the Hendy windfarm at Llandegley because it is in the “national interest”, comes as a shock, given . . .

100 percent clean power is impossible

Is this Clean Power Alliance just vaporware? First of all, it’s November and they don’t even have a functioning website yet. Secondly, they are proposing to supply “clean” power where the customer can choose 36 percent, 50 percent or 100 percent. How? The sun doesn’t shine at night. Wind power is unreliably available in the early morning and early evening only. Battery storage provides only a minuscule fraction of the state’s daily needs. Everybody following this issue should get familiar . . . Complete story »

CMP project may have wind component

On Oct. 17 in Hallowell at the Public Utilities Commission hearing, Kurt Beverage, a retired Central Maine Power employee, said, “This project will help unbundle the wind resources in western Maine.” Unbundle means to separate business activities, meaning that wind transmission lines from western Maine would not have to connect with the Kibby Wind Project, if that would even be possible anyway. New England Clean Energy Connect would change things drastically. Once permitted, the adjacent 150-foot corridor for wind transmission . . . Complete story »

Question 6 opposed by informed conservationists

Nevada’s goal of achieving 50 percent of electricity from renewables, according to recent Harvard engineering estimates, requires 16.65 percent of the state’s landmass (18,409 square miles) to be covered by solar/wind turbine facilities, which equals every square foot of Clark, Washoe, Douglas, Storey and Lyon counties, plus Carson City region and all major towns in other counties combined. Pro Question 6 propaganda states, “Thirteen states, including Colorado and Oregon, have renewable energy standards stronger than Nevada’s …” Notice the omission . . . Complete story »
