Way of life at stake in shadow of wind turbines

I have deep concern about and opposition to the wind-energy projects proposed for Farmersville, Freedom, Centerville and other communities. No amount of money offered by the wind farm developer can offset the irreparable damage caused by these huge monstrosities – damage to our health, to our way of life and to the natural beauty of our area. It will take 20 years for each tower to produce enough power to offset the fossil fuel consumption required for their construction. So much . . . Complete story »

Wind turbines vs. bats

I work in the public health field. An area of increasing concern involves pestilence control. Mosquito-borne diseases are responsible for an estimated 3 percent of all worldwide deaths. Likewise, there exists growing public criticism regarding the large amount of pesticides used in an effort to control disease-carrying pests that pose a threat to humans and livestock, as well as our food supply. Unfortunately, an often overlooked and unappreciated method of natural pestilence control now also is under assault. The industrial . . . Complete story »

Kimbrough: Wind turbines are bad for Wyoming wildlife

Wyoming is doing a study on pronghorns and wind turbines. They are putting in the wind turbines and then seeing if said turbines destroy the antelope herd. Yes, that’s right. Put in the turbines and if the antelope drop dead or disappear, too bad. Not to mention the destruction of a public hunt area—but since Wyoming politicians and news people almost universally despise wildlife, hunting and open spaces and will sell out the lives of eagles for a few bucks . . .

Big Wind has big plans

Big wind has big plans for Seneca County. There are now at least four possible wind farms that would cover almost the entire eastern half of the county. If these projects all go forward, more than 200 industrial wind turbines could cover Adams, Pleasant, Reed, Scipio, Thompson, Venice, Eden and Bloom townships. There is growing concern among non-participating property owners that this potential change in our environment may cost us the peaceful enjoyment of our own homes, diminished property values, . . .

Keep wind turbines out

I’m thinking, sitting here this morning, of the quagmire that we are letting ourselves into, the monstrosities being placed in and around our community if we allow it. What are the farmers for it thinking? I can’t believe it. Earth is a gift from God. Why do we want to scar it? There is an interesting article in Farm and Dairy, a publication in northwestern Ohio, by the Rev. Eldon Trubes, May 3, about stewardship, humility, meekness, the Beatitudes, a . . .

Proposed changes to wind ordinance still not enough

Can you tell me why the Montgomery County Commissioners are protecting birds, bats, muskrats and all wildlife in the Sugar Creek area with a setback from wind turbines of 2,640 feet? Adults, children, livestock and wildlife living away from Sugar Creek have only a setback a little more than the height of the turbine, and our homes only 1,300 feet. Wind turbine company employees are told, and in printed service manuals to stay at least 1,600 feet (Vestas) away from . . . Complete story »

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 »
