Just say no to industrial wind

Say no to destroying the environment and our communities. No industrial wind.

The Statue of Liberty stands 305 feet. The windmills are 410 feet, plus on mountaintops. The blades sweep one to two acres vertical area, tip speed 150-200 miles per hour, making noise and vibration. Tons of concrete and steel in each foundation. Roads and transmission lines. Lost wildlife. Shadow flicker from the blades, strobe lights day and night, degradation of natural environments. Unproven benefits and unreliable contracts.

Reunion Power is the only one who will benefit. Learn more — National Wind Watch (www.wind-watch.org.) Then call your senators and congressman and just say no to industrial wind.
