Bottom line on wind power

Bottom line on wind power
June 05,2012

If we allow our ridgelines to be blasted and turned into industrial zones, fully nullifying Vermont’s principle asset — its beautiful landscape;

If we permit the (permanent?) destruction of our ridgelines which are habitat vital to birds, wildlife and human recreation;

If we sacrifice the health, lives and property values of large numbers of residents who live in proximity to these turbines;

If we know that it is now a recognized fact that they are not economically viable (except for a very few);

If we now know that large wind turbines have a short life and are subject to fire and mechanical failure;

If authorities like VELCO say that currently and for the foreseeable future there is an abundance of power in Vermont as well as all of New England;

If we know that government subsidies, tax credits, etc., are coming to an end, resulting in the inevitable financial failure of many wind power companies;

If communities surrounding our ridgelines are overwhelmingly oppose;

Then the bottom line is: How could anyone in authority be so unconscionable and approve these projects?
