Kevin Ledet from Greenwich Neighbors United speaks to the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB)

Too often the local residents have to catch flaws that the wind developer has in their plans via the OPSB’s public comment process only to not hear anything in response. There has to be some sort of mechanism in place that places an emphasis on public inputs and concerns.

Kevin is extremely knowledgeable about these projects and the OPSB’s process which is why we were glad he was at today’s meeting.

 

 

Twiggy-led renewables consortium makes a grab for Windlab

Webmaster’s Note: At the end of the day it is never about “saving the planet” but It’s all about “what does your portfolio look like to investors?”…period!

Renewable energy company Windlab (ASX: WND) has entered into a binding agreement to be acquired by a consortium comprising of Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest’s Squadron Wind Energy Development Pty Ltd and an existing Windlab shareholder.

Anti-Wind Farm Activism Is Sweeping Europe—and the U.S. Could Be Next

Webmaster’s Note: Ya’ think that maybe this is because elitist continue to  blatantly treat  people as  contemptuous sheep and refuse to realize that people are much smarter than they (the elites) think they are?!

In September, the Netherlands counterterrorism unit the NCTV identified a new group threatening public safety: anti-wind farm activists.

This picture haunts me and breaks my heart all at the same time. I recently read that Kansas is in the top 3 states that these companies are wanting to make wind farms along with Iowa. This land will never be the same again.

The construction of 15 to-20 foot deep concrete foundations to support all of the 328-foot-high towers with 2-MW turbines required 30,000 tons of cement. On average, each of these below-ground support systems used 60 truckloads of concrete (750 yd3)

This is a picture of a wind turbine base with rebar in place before concrete poured. This is on some of the best ground in the world in Kossouth County, IA. This base will never be removed.

An Open Letter to the Work Force of Wind Energy,

I stepped outside of my home this evening and was struck by the impact the dark and quiet had on me. You see my home will quickly be invaded by 175, 500 foot wind turbines and each moment of this place as I have always known it has become a jewel I try to impact on my memory…

these are the ancedotal reports on what is happening to people forced to live closer to Industrial Wind Turbines

Study this as these are the ancedotal reports on what is happening to people forced to live closer to Industrial Wind Turbines than the World Health Organization recommendation of 1.5 miles to the nearest residential structure. These effects are even happening beyond this distance as people are reporting.
