Industrial wind doesn’t work! Chances are the legislators representing you either don’t know that, or they receive so much money or so many promises from the wind lobby they don’t care. Ignorance or greed, there’s not much in between.
That leaves citizens who oppose wind power with two options: educate your lawmakers or replace them. You’ll find out soon enough if your representative is a candidate for the education option and if not … toss them out.
Here are a couple of points to consider:
- The courts will not overturn what they feel is supported in law, so you need to get to the source of the law to have any impact.
- State agency policies are driven by the officials who hold the power to hire and fire them, so you need to get to that source of power to have any impact.
Conveniently, the source for both is the person you elect. And happily, you have the power to hire and fire them.
This is a hard task to take on alone. There are citizen’s groups forming throughout the country to take on the wind lobby. As we find them we link them here for your convenience. Find one near you and join. If you can’t find one, form one. The folks linked here will help.
The real danger is that as each case is decided, precedent is building in favor of the heavily funded wind companies and their enablers. To have any real chance of turning the industrial wind juggernaut around, you need to arm yourselves with facts from the many resources available, many of which are linked at this site.
Now, spend some time reading the court’s ruling in the Maine based Friends of Lincoln Lakes v Board of Environmental Protection, et al. The ruling language is boilerplate – repeated over and over in case after case. Reading it will point you to some of the issues that need your attention:
Oh, and by the way … if you think you haven’t yet been impacted by industrial wind, you have! You’re already paying higher taxes to subsidize them and higher electricity rates if they’re hooked to your grid. And if they’re not in your neighborhood, they will be. There’s far too much money available to the wind developers to leave a patch of land empty.
So I suggest you take this issue seriously.
