I’m not against wind power, I am actually for it. In the proper place with minimal negative impact, it is an excellent resource.
I am against the destruction of the Vermont ridgelines for industrial wind turbines that stand close to 500 feet high. How do they figure destroying an important ecosystem, killing animals, sickening humans, causing noise pollution, and toxic run-off is good for anything? They don’t care, it’s just about the money for them. They are destroying the very essence of Vermont. Don’t be blinded by these sneaky liars.
Wind power is good, but ridgeline destruction for industrial wind turbines is bad.
It couldn’t be more obvious.
