Fenwick committee urges opposition to wind farms

Please note Nov. 20 on your calendars as an important deadline for sending comments to the Bureau of Ocean Energy (BOEM) regarding proposals for the US Wind Marwin and Momentum Wind offshore wind projects: While it may be difficult for individuals to make their voices heard, BOEM’s hearing does provide an official forum for everyone to express opinions. As such, we urge you to record your opposition for a proposed project that will essentially destroy Delaware’s marine environment and coastal . . . Complete story »

‘Offshore wind farm for Devon coast is simply rubbish’

The White Cross Offshore Wind would see eight floating turbines constructed 52km from the North Devon coastline. But some people are not happy about the prospect. The site is predicted to cover an area of 50km² – the size of approximately 7,000 football pitches – and would provide renewable energy [equivalent to the use of] 135,000 households. The project forms part of a nationwide effort to reach net-zero by 2050, with White Cross Offshore Windfarms predicting the site will reduce . . . Complete story »

Bird migration endangered by World Energy GH2 project

I am writing in response to a recent article by birding columnist Bruce Mactavish, “Surprise bird spottings during autumn trip to Codroy Valley area.” I’ve been following the development of the World Energy GH2 project on the west coast of Newfoundland with great concern since its announcement in July 2022. The second proposed wind turbine site at the Anguille mountains in the Codroy Valley was a late addition to the project. The people there – and around the province – are only . . . Complete story »

Why the rush on wind energy proposal?

A recent edition of the Weekend Telegram reported on a forum that was convened to discuss the current state of review of the GH2 concept for two massive wind energy farms in southwestern Newfoundland (‘It’s so disheartening’: World Energy project a done deal, Memorial University professor speculates). It was reported that one speaker, Professor Russell Williams, has drawn the conclusion that the project is a fait accompli, a conclusion with which I am inclined to agree. The question being asked . . . Complete story »

Bring on the next boondoggle in N.L. with World Energy GH2

As a taxpayer in this province, I find the environmental assessment published by World Energy GH2 – Project Nujio’qonik on Aug. 22, 2023 very alarming. It alarms me because it clearly states that flora, fauna, and environment will be negatively affected by the construction and operation of this mega-project. It only states that these negative effects will be “mitigated.” How? It doesn’t say. It has completely failed to identify the negative effects of the project on the 4,600 people who . . .

Skye is the limit, so please save our island from more giant wind turbines

Sir, – My name is Richard Whatley, I am a self-employed joiner born and bred in Edinbane, Skye. I would like to express my objection to the Ben Aketil windfarm repowering for the following reasons: Negative visual impact: Crazy to have 200-metre turbines anywhere in Scotland or the Highlands, let alone Skye, one of the most beautifuI islands in the world that Is our home. Why not repower them to the same size as is already there? Please don’t allow . . . Complete story »

Wind farms are defiling the UK’s timeless beauty

Wind turbines (windmills) were adopted without pilot studies and against the advice of Sir David Mackay, Cambridge University’s engineering professor. They were marketed as Green. They have been foisted on us, defiling our land, damaging its timeless beauty and impairing tourism. Considering their foreign manufacture demanding steel, water, concrete and energy in vast amounts, their transport, installation, servicing, lubricating oil use and demolition, they are anything but Green. The non-recyclable blades demand landfill. They kill avian wildlife and damage human . . . Complete story »

What about habitat damage?

On April 6, 2023, the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission produced documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, which sought information related to Scout Energy’s Nimbus Wind Farm Project. Being good public servants, the AG&F adhered to the Arkansas Sunshine Law and shed light on what has been a seemingly opaque endeavor thus far. The following excerpt from a Scout Energy–Fish&Wildlife Service (FWS) meeting on September 27, 2018, is illuminative, and somewhat surprising: “All signed leases are . . . Complete story »

Refus de sacrifier notre région

Comme de nombreux habitants, j’ai reçu la propagande pro éolienne de Suisse Eole. J’ai entendu sa présidente justifiant ce tout-ménage par le besoin d’informer les populations concernées par la planification cantonale. Cette pseudo-information décrit l’éolien comme la solution miracle à nos problèmes d’approvisionnement en électricité. Elle énumère ses avantages en passant comme chat sur braise sur tous ses graves aspects négatifs. Le pire, c’est la caution officielle donnée à cette action par un cadre de l’Office fédéral de l’énergie (OFEN). . . . Complete story »
