This powerful video conveys the shock and sadness as wind energy projects move through Arkwright, NY and Chautauqua County.
Mary Kay Barton has been writing and speaking about the wind industry since 2004. Albert Vliestra was passively in favor of wind turbines coming to Warsaw County, then he became ill -- with protracted ailments -- after the turbines were installed in the area. Following a long fight against the turbines, Cathi Orr lost. She sold her 100 acre farm at a substantial loss, and fled. Albert Vliestra, too, sold his dream home at a major loss. The living room where this interview takes place is that of Linda and Paul Makson. The Makson home is surrounded by 16 giant wind turbines that creak, groan, whistle and whoosh all the time, but the infrasound is worse. And worse yet, New York taxpayers are paying for it, as per Governor Cuomo's "green energy" program.
