One hundred years ago, the poet W.B. Yeats wrote a poem called the Second Coming where he says, “Things fall apart, the center cannot hold.”   Some scholars think this line meant that the forces that should bring order are failing to do so.   We have a sense of déjà vu with epic wind battles taking place everywhere we look as the wind lobby marches on to demolish local governments.  In Ohio, we wait Continue reading Local Control Under Assault

As many of you know in the past month(s) Seneca Wind mislabeled their projects location as “Bloomfield” instead of “Bloomville” because of this the FAA is making them start all over again.
Because of this we need to flood the FAA with our concerns regarding the negative impacts that the Seneca Wind Project will have to our airports, life flight, and aerial agricultural applicators. Below is a step-by-step process on how to create an account with Continue reading Action Alert

Permanent destruction of the land for a “technology” that works only when the wind blows…?

The big hole pictures showing what goes in the ground. Thousands of truck loads of gravel, rebar and concrete. Taking the good earth and making it crappy earth.
