This past week, Sen. Obhof reiterated his feeling that HB 114 to lower the renewable energy and energy efficiency standards and reduce the wind turbine setbacks was not likely to advance given the year-end time crunch and because the changes proposed need “more caucus support”. “”We have very little time left and, as I’ve mentioned before, I think it’s more important we get policy right than that we set some kind of arbitrary deadline Continue reading More wind news from Ohio

Well, it has been over a year now since our fledgling group, Seneca Anti-Wind Union, was formed. To many people, we are saviors trying to stave off an industrial giant that is trying to wreck what we all hold dear and true in our lives — our home and property. On the other side of the fence is the disgust and angst that has been created by what can only be described as “a rift” in our community.
At the very bottom of all this lies money, and that is one indisputable fact that can not be argued by anyone. Unfortunately, however, the source of the money is what is at issue and, inevitably, the sacrifices needed to get it.
I have yet to talk to a farmer who legitimately has said they want to see 600-foot-tall imposing structures outside their windows 24 hours a day for 365 days a year over what may be the next 30 years of their lives. However, the folks who own land and live outside of our area could care less, just as long as that check comes in the mail every year. Continue reading Time marches on – Chris Zeman
In response to Jim Donaldson’s Nov. 27 Letter to the Editor titled “Koch brothers back anti-wind efforts,” I want to offer the following rebuttal.
Right off the top, let’s make it clear that Donaldson couldn’t be further from truth with his baseless allegations. I want it to be clear that there has been zero funding provided to Seneca Anti-Wind Union from Continue reading LTE – There are lies and then there are damn lies…

BELLEVUE — The debate surrounding local wind energy pits neighbor against neighbor.
That’s what Chris Bauer, a Bellevue resident who is part of the Seneca Anti-Wind Union, said about the proposed plans for the Emerson Creek Wind Project in Erie and Huron counties.
“We moved up here two and half years ago and found out we had wind turbines going through our neighborhood … We got prepared, got educated and now we are here fighting the Emerson Creek Project in Huron County,” Bauer said. Continue reading Local wind energy project faces opposition
Webmaster’s Note: Enter one urban dwelling liberal ( I know, I know..he’s a Republican [actually IMHO, a RINO] ) who embraces and desires to thrust a very flawed technology onto the rural masses. Like so many, Mr. Dolan can’t seem to get past $ signs and the first four pages of a wind developer’s sales brochure for his “facts”. An excellent rebuttal to Dolan’s opinion piece by Jeremy Kitson of Van Wert follows below, you’ll want to read both this article and especially Mr. Kitson’s rebuttal!
Our military leaders are asking for it. Our business leaders are begging for it. Our citizens are demanding it. Now is the time to put forth common-sense energy policies in Ohio, starting with wind-setback reforms, writes Matt Dolan.
This editorial is a direct response to Senator Matt Dolan’s piece on energy policy that was recently in the Plain Dealer. Senator Dolan is clearly a proponent of the blatant theft of people’s health, safety, property rights and value with SB 238. The reason it should be called theft is that his bill wants to site industrial wind turbines to people’s homes over their property lines. Rural Ohioans live in communities that are zoned agricultural-residential. Nothing about the rural community is zoned industrial. That is why Senator Dolan and the wind lobby love calling them wind “farms” or they are “harvesting” the wind. Continue reading Senator Dolan Rebuttal / Jeremy Kitson

The efficiency of solar and wind tech, despite being heavily subsidized, is rapidly approaching the limits of physics, which means there are no great efficiency improvements to be expected.

Could you and your family live with these industrial turbines right next to your house, your childrens’ bedrooms, play equipment and garden? Would you expect your family, friends or neighbours to live like this? Peoples lives matter, their health matters, their sanity matters.
WHAT THIS VIDEO CANNOT CONVEY IS: noise, infrasound, property devaluation, poor mental and physical health and quality of life.
Please share and tag friends and family if you agree this is NOT acceptable for human beings to live beside, anywhere in the world.
Senate President Larry Obhof surprised the caucus this week by naming Senator Steve Wilson (R-Maineville) as Chair of the Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee. Media reports noted “I look forward to Steve’s leadership of this committee,” said Obhof. “He has proven himself a hard-working, thoughtful, solution-oriented leader, and he understands the importance of developing a long-term energy policy that provides affordable options for Ohioans and protects our natural resources.” Wilson was appointed to the Ohio Senate in 2017 and was elected to his first term in 2018.

So….I’ve noticed that no one has ever mentioned anything about the wind farms at night. Has anyone, on here, ever been by one then? It is absolutely ridiculous! There ARE farm houses all along this route that I was on. (Camera credit to my daughter, Caidence)
