The rich get richer

Investment tycoon, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and multi-billionaire Warren Buffett was quoted as saying: “I will do anything that is basically covered by the law to reduce Berkshire’s tax rate. For example, on wind energy, we get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.” Wind turbines are at best 40-percent efficient (if the wind blows) and uncompetitive relative to other lower-cost . . . Complete story »

Unreliable wind is a poor energy source, by Fred Ward

There have been stories and letters in The Sentinel extolling the merits of wind power and its contributions to our energy mix. It’s unfortunate that wind energy has ever risen in energy discussions, because it suffers a serious, fundamental and likely insoluble problem. This problem is sufficiently serious as to question whether wind energy should ever be considered to contribute meaningful electrical energy to New Hampshire. Legislatively forcing wind to contribute more than 1, 2 or 3 percent of our . . . Complete story »

Wind farm provides no net gain for community

In response to “Wind Law Passes, Kills Development” which appeared on the front page of the May 2-8 issue of North Country This Week: I read Paul Coplelman’s statements in article written by Matt Lindsey for North Country This Week. He states “The most disheartening thing about this abrupt reversal and improper revote is that it surrenders to the handful of opponents using intimidating tactics and ignores so many voices in the community.” 1. This was a totally legal, legitimate, . . . Complete story »

Cost of turbines

My rant for today and if you are offended by this, good. That just means you’re part of the problem. To the greedy landowners of North Stormont. Thank you for allowing the hostile takeover of our township by the foreign companies driving the Nation Rise Wind Turbine project. The money they make will not be staying in Canada. So because you can’t see past the dollar signs we will all directly suffer from these turbines. Have you considered the costs . . . Complete story »

Wind farms pollute prairie landscape of Maxwell refuge

Once, when on a trip to Alaska, our naturalist guide, after seeing all the wonders of Alaska, challenged us upon returning to our homes to look for the natural beauty in our own states. Maxwell Wildlife Refuge is just such a place. Civilization can scarcely be seen from parts of the refuge, making me think that this is the way the prairie looked when my great-grandfather immigrated to the Smoky Hills region in 1864. However, this refuge is threatened by . . . Complete story »

Wind farm is a great opportunity for disaster

Once again I am compelled to set the facts and issues straight. The pro-wind people have tried to no avail to recruit persons in neighboring towns to write letters, be in full-page ads and help convince North County people this project would be good for the area – however when anyone from a neighboring town has something negative to say about the project, all we hear is go home. You are wrong. This project will effect many more people in . . . Complete story »

Lots of problems, few benefits from wind farms

We just wanted to add our voice and agreement with James Cook, Westerose, regarding wind farms in the Winfield area or, for that matter, any other area in Alberta. Wind farms are a mistake as has been shown worldwide; we do not want them anywhere in Alberta. Not only are they a subsidized liability, they are far from being “green”—from the materials used to construct them, the concrete needed to hold them in place, to the environmental damage they do . . .

Wind farms away

Located in the heart of the Central Flyway for migratory birds, Maxwell Wildlife Refuge in McPherson County is now threatened by possible wind farms. Home to an almost pristine native prairie, this refuge might soon be ringed by 300-foot wind turbines. Needless to say, the visual impact on this natural and historic site would be detrimental. This refuge was given to the people of Kansas to be a permanent reminder of the way Kansas was. Thousands of people from around . . . Complete story »

Mojave not right for wind farm

A Swedish company proposes to build 240 massive wind turbines on 32,531 acres of public land bordering the Mojave National Preserve, the Castle Mountains National Monument and the Wee Thump Joshua Tree Wilderness, ruining the views and natural atmosphere within these pristine places. We need to generate electricity from wind and solar, but not at the expense of biodiverse ecosystems millions of years in the making. These turbines would be 500 feet tall and require 90 miles of new roads. . . . Complete story »

Life by a wind turbine, or two

When I was in Iraq in 2006, my wife at the time emailed me and said Byron Christoffer wanted to put up some wind turbines across the road from us on his property. I said that is fine, I like electricity. In my mind I envisioned wind turbines in the middle of the section like another wind turbine project Steve Christoffer had built near me north of the interstate. When I got home in 2007, we drove down the gravel . . . Complete story »
