Published: Sun, November 25, 2018 

THE rap on wind power is that it isn’t practical. New research reinforces this belief, and suggests wind power isn’t as environmentally beneficial as claimed.

They also examined the environmental impact of wind farms. Continue reading Recent studies show flaws of wind power

our top priorities is to fix some of the major issues at the US Department of Energy (DOE).

Very few of the needed changes in the DOE have been made over the last 2± years (especially as compared to what’s happened at the EPA) — and we are running out of time!

Seneca County divide continues to grow as townships, commissioners mull wind intervention

At this point, it’s safe to say lots of Seneca County residents oppose potential incoming wind turbines.
