How can we be sure? They ALWAYS do! We have blogged about this board before. Their name should be the ‘Say Yes to BigWind’ board. There has NEVER been even one instance when the board h…

Wind turbines in Germany could lead to the extinction of the porpoise. Migratory bats could could go extinct if the expansion of wind energy continues. A California solar farm required the killing of hundreds of tortoises. Can scientists and conservationists stop the killing before it’s too late?
What keeps a wind turbine turning? Yes, it’s a trick question. You need a good breeze, of course – but there’s something else that’s essential, something that you might not associate with wind power. And that something, would be oil or natural gas. Yep. Wind power depends on the hydrocarbon. That’s because inside those turbines […]
SANDUSKY — All good things must come to an end, at least for now.
In this season finale of “Bird Nerd,” the conversation moves away from awesome springtime birding and takes a more serious tone.
Early last week, I was contacted by a member of the Seneca Anti-Wind Union after she listened to a few episodes of the podcast.
Bellevue resident and beekeeper Deb Hay had plenty of information to share about the dangers migratory birds might face with several Continue reading Sandusky Register / LISTEN: Anti-wind enery activists speak out
Until such time as electricity can be stored at scale, wind energy is a terrible idea. Across the U.S., wind turbines produce electricity approximately 40% of the time. That means they are unreliable. Since we expect the lights to go on 100% of the time, we need enough reliable energy sources–coal, natural gas, nuclear, hydroelectric–to meet peak load. Which means that wind energy is inevitably an expensive sideshow. Why do
Those pumping wind and solar only ever talk about capacity, which is like being told that the cheque is in the mail. The kind of fantastic promise made by those who hope it never collides with real…
This investigation has found more than 450 families who have publicly complained about the impacts of living near wind farms. Have a similar experience? Tell us your story in your own words.
My wife and I, both lifelong residents of Seneca County, purchased our home in Bloom Township about two years ago. Our property/home is the definition of the Seneca County dream. Our home sits upon 18 acres that are located on the most peaceful backroad that cuts right through the beautiful countryside. In our neighborhood there are small and large farmsteads, plentiful amounts of diverse wildlife, a nature preserve, scenic Honey Creek, majestic bald eagles, multiple historical properties and, lastly, a wide-open backdrop with perfect sunrises and sunsets. During the Continue reading Letter to the Editor – Against wind turbines
This is an alert to let you know that setback legislation is moving forward. We understand that Dolan’s setback reduction language in SB 238, will be moved into HB 114 and will be offered at the May 16th meeting of the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee. The Committee meets at 2:30 p.m. in the Senate Finance Hearing Room. The revised bill will be known as Substitute HB 114. There will be NO OPPORTUNITY to testify at this hearing. It is important for all readers to know that this is the starting point for discussion and what is introduced is not necessarily what will finally pass out of the Committee.
HB 114 (changing renewable energy mandates into “goals”) has already passed the House of Representatives. When and if Sub. HB 114 is approved by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and, thereafter by the full Senate, the bill will go to the House only for a Yes or No vote to concur with the new substitute Continue reading Setback Legislation to Move Forward Next Week
Sometimes shortsighted idiots introduce a species into our countries that don’t belong. They adversely affect the environment, the wildlife and the people who live there.
Sometimes they are hard to manage. They breed. They push out the indigenous, kill the wildlife that dares to come too close and they destroy everywhere that they settle.
Governments actively encourage their introduction against the wishes of the people who have to live with them. They grow across Continue reading Wind Energy’s Absurd – Invasive Species

The only successful efforts to create near-zero carbon electricity supplies didn’t require solar or wind whatsoever. As such solar and wind aren’t just insufficient, they are also unnecessary for solving climate change. And that turns out to be a good thing.
” There is no such thing as “free” energy. Capturing wind and solar energy and converting it to electricity requires the manufacture, transportation,
Madison County residents are blasting a plan to build more wind turbines in the area.
