!!!𝐂𝐀𝐋𝐋 𝐓𝐎 𝐀𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍!!!

The time is now and the chance that #SB52 heavily weighs on what we do next. We need to 𝐎𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐖𝐇𝐄𝐋𝐌 the House Public Utilities Committee with emails in support of #SB52

 

𝙃𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙤:
In the subject line state in a few of your own words that you support SB52, so that even if they don’t read the rest of the email they know you are in favor of the bill.
𝘽𝙤𝙙𝙮 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙚𝙢𝙖𝙞𝙡:
Representatives,
In the end SB52 is about property rights for all, not just the landowners where projects are built.  Although industrial wind and solar projects are usually built on farmland they are NOT agricultural in nature and therefore do not qualify under Ohio law Continue reading !!!𝐂𝐀𝐋𝐋 𝐓𝐎 𝐀𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍!!!

Energy Sausage being Made in General Assembly

 

This week Sub Senate Bill 52 was heard in the Senate.  Thirty-one witnesses submitted testimony in opposition while about 55 testified in support either through written or oral testimony.  The opponents included Michael Pullins of Champaign County who among other things said he “weeps for the Republican Party” because of the bill.   Good grief.  The video of the May 19 hearing can be watched at https://www.ohiochannel.org/collections/ohio-senate-energy-and-public-utilities-committee .  Testifying in support of the bill were Commissioner Vonderhaar of Preble County, a Trustee from Allen County and former First Lady Hope Taft.  Mrs. Taft gave an excellent presentation illustrated by a map of the Continue reading Energy Sausage being Made in General Assembly

Why Wind and Solar Energy Are Doomed to Failure

Wind and solar energy are both essentially obsolete technologies. There is a reason why only the very rich or the very adventurous sail across oceans: the wind is unreliable, and at best produces relatively little energy. Nevertheless, liberals have concocted fantasies whereby all of our electricity, or perhaps our entire economy, will be powered by those fickle sources. There are a number of reasons why this will never happen, but

All 3 Meteorological Evaluation Towers (MET) Removed from Greenwich Township

It’s not what you see here that is important but what you don’t see.

This the former site on State Route 13 of one of three meteorological evaluation towers (MET) installed in our area.  As you know, these lovely monstrosities are the precursor that signal an upcoming invasion of industrial wind  is about to happen to some hapless community. It was noted today by local residents that all three towers have been dismantled and have been completely removed.  

 

To Every Thing There Is A Season..

What an incredible journey! In just a couple of months, it will have been seven years since our GNU website came into existence. A “one stop shop” repository of knowledge, GNU had two basic missions to provide content, 1. To facilitate those who were in search of the truth and 2. To support the fight in which our local Greenwich community found themselves thrust into.

In the beginning it was extremely difficult to find “facts & figures” proving that industrial wind is indeed “not cheap, not free, not green”…you know the rest. But that all changed and it changed fast! Continue reading To Every Thing There Is A Season..

Farms Under Threat: The State of the States

AFT’s Farms Under Threat: The State of the States uses new spatial analyses to incorporate updated datasets and refined methods, allowing us to map agricultural land at the state, county, and even sub-county levels. At the same time, we conducted an extensive analysis of six state policy responses to the forces that lead to agricultural land conversion: development pressure, weakened farm viability, and the challenges of transferring land to a new generation.

Deep-red rural Ohio’s solar energy boom divides farming communities

Brad Cochran is raising his family in the same farmhouse his grandparents once shared. The Cochran home in Martinsville, Ohio, is an old, stately white house with black shutters surrounded by gently rolling open fields. Traffic only occasionally passes. Despite the house being sold to owners outside his family for over a decade ago, through some persistence, Cochran and his wife, Dani, were able to convince the previous owners to sell it to them.
