Re: “The Parmelee Post: Plotting Return to Sea, Technology Park Whales Invest Heavily in Fossil Fuels

A comment that offshore wind impacts whales? The infrasound from waves at sea are a million times stronger than what comes from a wind farm. But that does no harm to whales, who communicate with powerful infrasound, like elephants do. Do you know what can do terrible harm to whales? The sound blasts used all over the world to explore for deep sea oil and gas reserves. These blasts, set off by huge explosions, can permanently destroy the hearing of whales and dolphins. And that renders them "blind" since they see by sound.

Re: “Pro-Wind Group Seeks to Change Message

Putting a turbine on a ridge line doesn't destroy the environment. We have built 1000 times more stuff than this, all over the state. We have 16,000 miles of roadway. 200,000 homes. 20,000 miles of power lines. Rail, bridges, cleared agricultural land, superfund sites, thousands of cell towers. Environment not yet destroyed. Here's what will definitely alter the environment: continued massive burning of fossil fuel. Environmental opposition to wind power is utterly illogical. You have been fooled by Koch Industries / Ethan Allen Institute, who are tricking you into continuing to burn their coal, gas, and oil. They are spending millions a year to fool you, and they are succeeding. We are easily fooled.

Re: “Pro-Wind Group Seeks to Change Message

A Smith says wind "does not work in Vermont" because "right now" it is supply only 100 to 150 mW. But that is a LOT of power. Vermont Yankee only provided about 620 mW at full output. That, right now, means we are burning about one million cubic feet of gas less, each hour. Does not work???
