Members of the environmental left like to portray themselves as do gooders - social justice warriors who walk on a higher plane, saving the planet and saving its unwashed ignorant commoners from themselves. Their advocacy of wind power (which they often do because their funders instruct them to do so) hardly constitutes "social justice" and disproportionately harms the poor.
Unlike the wealthy who can lawyer up, the poor cannot as readily fight off wind developers. The wealthy coastal rich have politicians like Senator Susan Collins clamoring for 20 mile wind setbacks from coastal properties, but advocating absurdly small and deleterious setbacks in the poor interior. Additionally, selectmen in poor communities may be poor themselves and particularly willing to take wind developer cash. Wind and its transmission costs jack up electric bills, disproportionately hitting the poor. Additionally, the poor become trapped in the wind turbines' kill zone as they cannot afford to abandon their house as shown in the following article.
Nancy Shea rose to say she moved from Tilda Hill in Florida after the Hoosac Wind Power Project turbines were erected in Florida and Monroe.
"Infrasound will make you sick, if you can't afford to move," she said.
