Wind Turbine Industries Should Be Banned

1) Wind Turbines kill people before they are even assembled. Each turbine requires two car size magnets! Made in China, with processing of 30,000 tons of rare earth metals a year, and seven million tons of waste a year (according to Du Youlu of Baogang's safety and environmental protection), with toxic waste being pumped out 24 hours a day. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/moslive/article-1350811/In-China-true-cost-Britains-clean-green-wind-power-experiment-Pollution-disastrous-scale.html ,created on January 26, 2011, for Live Magazine.
2) Wind Turbine Syndrome, and Vibro-Acoustic Disease! Due to the low-frequency noise. http://www.wind-watch.org/documents/summary-of-recent-field-observations-of-adverse-health-effects-from-wind-developments-in-australia/
3) Destruction of land and historically valuable sites.
4) USFWS have yet to include the effects of LFN on endangered species in their Land-Based Wind Turbine Guidelines. And the US Gov. is wrong to issue kill permits for any species!
4) Not ONE power plant has been able to be decommissioned as a direct result of ANY wind industry's ability to produce energy!
5) Other countries have discontinued supporting wind industries because they DO NOT WORK...the US should be paying attention...and not paying for wind with OUR taxes!

A little something to help educate others about Industrial Turbines Status

While turning, wind turbines do not produce air pollution. But that’s where the good news ends. Everything else about them is pollution, pollution, pollution. All aspects of them require tremendous amount of fossil fuels including their ongoing operation.

Each industrial wind turbine requires well over a ton of Neodium for its permanent generator magnet. Mining and refining neodium produces a tremendous amount of very serious pollution that kills people, with poison and cancer, creates huge open lakes of chemical waste which is also radioactive due to the Cesium production involved. Livestock, wildlife and vegetation are destroyed as well. This toxic waste is almost as dangerous as nuclear waste. But, the wind industry wants us to not pay any attention to what’s happening behind that curtain.

The wind industry also doesn’t want us to pay any attention to the fossil fuel consumption and destruction involved in moving wind turbines from factory to operating site. Preparing a roadway that will support the wind turbines is a major big deal for rural

Installations which require clear cutting trees that produce oxygen from CO2, digging out soil down to the of the basic ground level, filling the trench with 18 inches of 8 inch diameter rock and then 6 inch diameter rock and a rock topping the vehicles can operate on. The effect is to divide off and compartmentalize the wildlife habitats so wildlife have undo trouble meeting. The final site requires the demolition of mountainous places which are lost to all future generations. It is damage that cannot be undone. This is undo damage.

            Now consider a few of the ill effects of operating industrial turbines in industrial wind complexes which some people euphemistically refer to as “wind farms” (sick!). There is much hard evidence to verify:

  • Wind power companies deny and minimize the ill effects of industrial turbines
  • Feeble and unsteady output. Our “best” complex provides less than 25% of its promised output.
  • Requires fossil fuel backup when the wind is not blowing.
  • Wind industry’s willingness to kill avian wildlife.
  • Sound pollution and an increasing number of emerging health impacts on residents
  • Causing social distress in families and the community
  • Destruction of property values.
  • Driving residents from their homes; and wildlife from their habitat
  • Wind industry unwilling to accommodate area residents’ needs as stated.
  • Wind industry unwilling to provide adequate decommissioning costs in case the project doesn’t work out for the residents.
  • Increases in electricity costs discouraging business development in Maine
  • Increases in taxes due to energy subsidies.
  • The unsightliness of the turbines in the Maine landscape.
  • Wind turbines have major forest fire risk.
  • When flashing red warning lights fail, they present a real danger to pilots.
  • The corruption the industry causes in all levels of government.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
