The fight is not over! HB 6 needs your support!

The last few weeks have shown a lot of progress in the fight for Ohio’s clean energy jobs. HB 6 passed in committee and then passed in the Ohio House. We couldn’t have done any of that without your hard work, dedication, and your voice. You called in and wrote to your representatives urging them to support the Ohio Clean Air Program and it paid off!

However, this fight is not over. The bill is now under consideration in the Ohio Senate and we need everyone in our community to take action! Please click below to call your State Senator and ask them to support HB 6.

If you’ve already called your Senator and want to help out further, forward this email to at least one friend and get them to call in.

We thank you for your unwavering support, commitment, and engagement throughout this whole fight. Our work is not done, but we are humbled by your support thus far.

🌬 Huffing and Puffing Everywhere 💨

As the Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee gears up for its first hearing on HB 6, the opposition is flooding the print media with articles and opinion pieces that argue against the provisions of the bill, advocate for closing the nuclear plants and reducing wind turbine setbacks.   An assortment of articles is provided below.  You are encouraged to click on the links and post comments on these stories. Do not let the opponents and the wind lobby win the PR war!  They need to be challenged!  If you feel  comfortable, write letters to the Editor of major papers.  We draw your attention to a letter in the Dispatch from Sam Gerhardstein of Marysville that reflects support for the local referendum provision of HB 6.   Supporting comments on letters like this are important too.  Most of the papers require the comments to be made via Facebook.  

In a disgusting turn of events, the Icebreaker Wind developer, LEEDCo, is asking senators for a portion of the funding that would Continue reading

EIA data shows wind & solar met 3% of U.S. energy after $50 billion in subsidizes

Webmaster’s Note: This article only reinforces the statement made early on in the war against renewables that “Wind energy is the greatest scam ever to be perpetrated on mankind!”

Guest essay by Larry Hamlin The EIA AEO 2019 report shows that in year 2018 wind and solar energy resources provide about 3% of U.S. total energy consumption while fossil fuel energy resources prov…

I’m not sharing any of this for sympathy, I’m sharing it for awareness

Webmaster’s Note: This story is not about wind farms but it is about rural life. As we are experiencing unrelenting rains this year, we are reminded that farming is difficult enough without the onslaught of the industrial wind cartel..

What you can’t see or hear are the tears that are welling up in his eyes or the cries out of WHY. Why wouldn’t the monitor work last night so that he could finish planting that field, why can’t the weather cooperate, why can’t we get our crops planted when we Continue reading I’m not sharing any of this for sympathy, I’m sharing it for awareness

The Learning Curve – A Challenge in the Ohio Senate and the Governor’s Office

This coming week the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee may hear HB 260, the Democrat’s version of the “Ohio New Green Deal”.  It is possible that the Committee will hear sponsor testimony on Tuesday at 11:00.  If so, it is likely the hearing will be broadcast on the Ohio Channel.   Practically all House Democrats have signed on as Co-Sponsors.  Among other things, the bill would codify setbacks of 750 feet from property lines for projects approved before September 29, 2013 and 1.1x turbine height to property line after that date.  Distance to a habitable structure would be 1,125’.   We believe any projects which were Continue reading The Learning Curve – A Challenge in the Ohio Senate and the Governor’s Office

Successfully Winning the Wind War – Arm yourself…it is war!!!

 
Wind Warriors:
 
By FAR the most successful strategy to win a local fight against industrial wind energy, is to expose the wind project’s true Net local economic impact.
 
The five step outline for a plan-of-action is on our Winning webpage.
The scientific studies to back this up are on the Key Documents webpage.
 
I’m writing you today to alert you to a major new development, to help such communities:

Lying tactics leveled once again at Chris Aicholz of SAWU by “no name” reporter (Excellent response by Jeremy Kitson)

TiffinOhio.net

“I want it to be clear that there has been zero funding provided to Seneca Anti-Wind Union from any outside big oil, big coal or dark money organizations!,” SAWU leader Chris Aichholz once stated in a letter-to-the-editor.

Amendment in bill would allow for townships to hole a special vote on proposed wind farms
 

TIFFIN, Ohio — An amendment to a current state house bill may allow members of local communities to hold a special vote on proposed large wind turbine projects.

For the last year, the Seneca Anti Wind Union has campaigned against a multiple proposed wind farms intended to be built in eastern Seneca County. Continue reading Seneca Anti Wind Union supports HB6 (Interview video at end of article)

Wind News – Victory in the Ohio House! Heads Up!… traitor Gayle Manning is still nobody’s friend!  😏Except To Big Wind 

Today we achieved a significant victory in the Ohio House of Representatives with the passage of HB 6 which will save clean energy generation at the Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear plants and will give township voters the right of referendum to accept or reject OPSB certificates of approval for industrial wind projects over 20MW. Projects under 20 MW would be subject to local zoning. We have never been closer to regaining a voice in the future of our communities than we are today.

We owe much to the hard work of Rep. Nino Vitale, Chairman of the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee as well as Rep. Dick Stein who co-chaired the Energy Generation Subcommittee. Thanks, too, go to the support of the Speaker of the House Larry Householder. Of course, Rep. Bill Reineke’s amendment to allow local voters a chance to accept or reject a wind development was Continue reading Wind News – Victory in the Ohio House!
