Four Minute Video of a Forests Death

40,000 acres of rural woodlands and wildlife habitat are under assault in Chautauqua County by three wind turbine factories: Arkwright Summit, the first, is underway as shown in this video. Birds, bats, and other wildlife are threatened. Backup energy sources must be cycled to cover times when wind stops, wasting gas and coal energy. Turbine capacity ratings are 1/3 what wind companies claim (I.e. 1/3rd the $ promised). Turbines only produce electricity 24% of the time in Western NY. Construction of 500’ turbines involves large amounts of steel from coal, immense quantities of concrete, and rare earth metals mined in environmentally destructive conditions. Health issues include wind turbine syndrome from exposure to noise, infrasound, and flicker effect. Investors are beginning to notice most wind factories east of the Mississippi are being sued on behalf of residents suffering from proximity to turbines. The NYS Constitution requires: that ”local officials protect the health, safety, and welfare of the community.“ Which Chautauqua County communities will be targeted by wind factories next?

2 Years of operation of these could Wipe Out Maine's 20 Million Acres. But we are piecemealing it, one ROW and Project at a time!

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (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  http://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?"  http://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.” http://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.
