Wind turbine supporters are ignoring the facts on hazards

Over the last couple of years, concerned citizens all around Jefferson County have sponsored informational sessions on wind turbine issues. These sessions have brought out the facts and the health hazards of placing wind turbines where people live. ...The facts are there and the facts are being stepped over to pick up money our Congress has made available for renewable energy. This is your money, and this is just another giveaway program for an inefficient source of energy. We need to channel our tax dollars into the development of real fuel-cell technology for cars and trucks.

These sessions have brought out the facts and the health hazards of placing wind turbines where people live. These sessions have also covered environmental issues, property values and the cost that the taxpayers will have to bear in the placement of these 400-foot structures. The Voters for Wind group that has attended these sessions still seems to refuse to acknowledge the pure facts from around the world that are available on hazards that wind turbines have on people.

On the American Wind Energy Associations (AWEA) Web site, they refer to turbine noise 700 to 1,000 feet from your house as equal to that of a refrigerator. You just have to go to CLICK HERE and search wind turbines and you can hear for yourself what the AWEA's take on what a refrigerator sounds like.

Other countries, like Japan, are developing fuel-cell home-heating units, while we still burn oil, natural gas and wood. This waste of our tax money must stop. This is America. We are supposed to lead the way.
