Re: “Energy Critics Make Strongest Statehouse Push

You folks who are questioning the health effects of these monstrous industrial turbines should be ashamed of yourselves for belittling your fellow Vermonters who are suffering. Wind turbine syndrome is recognized by the United Nations. It is real. Here in Maine, we've had more and longer experience with these huge turbines and it is difficult to listen to what rural residents near these machines are experiencing. The vibrations, the shadow flicker, the low level noise that goes on and on. I listened to a resident explain how she felt like a tuning fork on some days with the vibration going from her feet to the top of her head. She was a regular Mainer and spoke of how she is becoming an expert in weather, wind speed and direction, etc because the variations create different awful sensations to deal with. When these huge turbines are spinning, the peace in her home is gone. This has happened to hundreds of Mainers. And all for a lie, because these goddam industrial turbines notoriously and consistently underperform. The wind is unpredictable and very often blows when more energy is not needed such as at night. Putting them up destroys mountain tops and ridge lines, destroys wildlife habitat, kills federally protected eagles and endangered bats, removes tens of thousands of carbon sequestering trees. Why do you think such filthy companies as TransCanada, the company behind the Keystone pipeline, love the wind energy scam? They and their Wall Street/Big Bank pals love the federal taxpayer giveaway and their guaranteed rip off profits. Vermonters: put an end to the industrial wind scam as fast as you can. Protect your natural heritage, your precious wild life, your fellow citizens and your special quality of place.
