Dirty Business: the reality of Ontario’s rush to wind power is all about how the Ontario government fell for the claims of Big Wind, about benefits to the environment, the economy, and wind power’s role in saving lives from dirty coal.
Now, however, as the complaints of negative health effects mount, and as communities demand a say in whether they become industrial power plants, Big Wind is ramping up its assault.
This week: wind developers have begun a campaign to say that people are “preparing themselves” to be sick from wind turbines. They’re not really sick, just confused. (And maybe in need of a little therapy. Really. A consultant to a wind developer said that.) And they’re listening to groups like Wind Concerns Ontario and the dozens of citizens’ groups around the world that’s just making them feel worse.
And now, a small town in Maine is being sued because they dared to stand up against a huge wind developer. Read a blogpost here: http://realwindinfoforme.com/blog/threats-and-intimidation/
It’s a Dirty Business.
