Minnesota Landscape - Bent Tree wind facility

Wind-journey-1_thumb On Monday, November 7, 2016, Kristi Rosenquist visit with friends in south-central Minnesota. For 5 1/2 years, Kristi's friends have been living with the constant sound and motion of the Bent Tree wind project (200 MW, 122 turbines) owned by Alliant Energy - a life they describe as torture. This is not a unique story. Many people are sick and tortured in industrial wind projects across the globe. Many have left their homes - either abandoned them entirely, or, when possible sold them at a great financial loss to escape. Kristi took these photos and graciously permiited Windaction to post them here.

Turbine build-out in Michigan's Thumb area

What2800turbineslooklike_thumb This image depicts what the Thumb region of Michigan might look like should 2800 wind turbines be erected as proposed by the Governor's Wind Zone Board. This would be the equivalent to building 88 wind farms sized equal to the John Deere Harvest wind facility (32 turbines). The turbines marked in red on the image are existing facilities both owned and operated by John Deere. The Harvest wind site is located in the north west. The Michigan Wind I facility consists of 46 towers in Ubly to the south east. Numerous complaints of excessive noise from the towers have already been filed.
