My wife and I own a home on Backbone Mountain, which is located next to the first turbine in the proposed Roth Rock wind power project.
It will be 1,185 feet from my bedroom to this 476 foot tall industrial structure, which is nearly as tall as the Washington monument but only two "monument lengths" away. Except in this case it's not a benign stone structure. It's mechanical with large, noisy, and dangerous moving parts.
This turbine will also be located within 378 feet of two other lots in our subdivision.
Windpower will do nothing about our dependence on foreign oil and virtually nothing about global warming, despite the ardent beliefs of its supporters.
