Wind turbines will hurt property values

I am sure everyone knows by now that RES (Renewable Energy Systems), a foreign owned company from Great Britain, plans to build 600- to 800-foot-tall turbines in northern Cass County. Beware, southern Cass County and Pulaski County: They are coming after you next. Our three County Commissioners said they are all for them, but Ralph Anderson said in the Pharos-Tribune that he wouldn’t want one by his home. Is that a good comment to make if you are in office . . . Complete story »

Industrial wind turbines threaten our way of life

There is an invasion coming that will destroy our rural way of life. It will destroy the vast ,untouched, sweeping views of rolling hills, woodlands and abundant wildlife and the quiet peace and tranquility which are some of western New York’s most valuable assets. The invader: 600 feet tall industrial wind turbines and high voltage transmission lines, up to 150 feet tall. Currently there are 176 turbines under signed leases projected for a 15-mile swath between Canisteo and West Union. . . . Complete story »

Property rights end at property lines

Those proponents of Lighthouse Wind, and particularly those who have leased land to Apex on which to site wind turbines, are quick to proclaim that the principle of property rights gives them the right to have an industrial wind turbine located on their property if they so desire. That is only partially true. A quotation often credited to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. states “My right to swing my fist ends just where the other man’s nose begins.” Similar sayings are . . .

Wind farm debate

The front page article in Saturday January 6, James Purcell, Member for Western Victoria, states that trickle down payments to residents neighbouring wind farms would help overcome the division in communities hosting wind farms. I would (and I am sure other readers that will be affected by wind farms) like Mr Purcell’s valued assessment in dollar terms of what he would expect to be a reasonable compensation package to be subjected to the following – noise pollution, blade shadow flicker, . . .

Commissioners need to do much more investigation on alternate energy

I saw your article on the APEX tax exemption request in the Norwalk Reflector. For what it may be worth, I have attached the prepared statement I submitted to the Huron County Commissioners during the “public” portion of the meeting on Jan. 4, 2018. Based on the comments made by the commissioners at the meeting, it seems like they need to do much more investigation before they will have a useful and reliable understanding the implications of granting Apex (Clean . . .

Wind turbines still problematic for wildlife

Justyna Tomta’s article on the Skookumchuck Wind Energy Project (Dec. 16, 2017) states that “Questions on the effects the turbines would have on the marbled murrelet were also raised, leading to the change in plans.” The concerns of the Black Hills Audubon Society (which represents members in Lewis, Thurston, and Mason counties) as well as the Willapa Hills and Rainier Audubon Societies expressed in a meeting with RES-Americas about the marbled murrelet (a state-endangered seabird that nests far inland) are . . .

Le scandale et la duperie écologique de l’éolien en France

Madame, Monsieur, Je suis Maire d’un village du département de la Marne qui possède sur son territoire 10 éoliennes MAIS aussi et surtout le poste électrique ENEDIS qui reçoit la production éolienne de tous les villages alentour. Le village était déjà doté d’un superbe poste RTE construit dans les années 50. Tous cela à 15m de la première habitation qui elle, date de 1810. Autant dire que nous sommes ravis car en plus nous ne percevons pas les IFER car . . . Complete story »

Proposed wind turbine project endangers all that makes our regional beautiful

So it looks like the Shasta-Cascade Wonderland is going to take another giant step in the direction of industrialization just like the rest of California. At this rate Shasta County will look just like Altamont, Tehachapi or the Columbia River gorge in no time. Have any of the county supervisors actually visited these mega-wind farms? I’m trying to imagine a project that would dwarf the existing Hatchett Ridge turbines. One hundred new turbines close to 200 feet taller than those . . . Complete story »

Responds to Los letter…

Well Mr. Los got one thing correct, you can fool some of the people some of the time. Obviously he is one of the people that got fooled by what he was told, and he signed a lease with APEX. In his letter it states what a “blessing” it will be to have the wind turbines in our area. It’s not all going to be for those of us living among the 500-600 foot wind turbines. Some of the land . . . Complete story »

Pseudo environmentalism misses the point

It’s interesting – and frustrating at the same time – to see the anger and uproar from environmentalists in recent news stories surrounding the blue picture frame at Garden of the Gods and the power plants in Colorado Springs. With regard to the “Blue Frame,” people act like it was in a wilderness area instead of being in an urban area. The big picture, though, is this supposed environmental concern for the region with regard to the power plants. These plants were . . . Complete story »
