I am in support of a three-year moratorium that gives the people and legislative body of Vermont time to step back and view the impacts of wind power projects. They need to understand the stress our friends and families have absorbed while living near them.
Hopefully, this past election brought us senators and representatives that are aware and awake to the fact that we, as a people, need our mountains to remain whole and intact as Vermonters.
Somehow, the governor has been blind to the destructive process that has occurred and is still occurring on our cherished ground.
Act 250 has been shoveled aside, people have been denied a say and the divisiveness amongst our communities has reared up like a cancer.
The governor has said some people will have to sacrifice for the greater good.Really? I don’t see him sacrificing his land, home or family to live near the towers.
