Saint Albans Messenger; November 13, 2015
I’m not sure how it got on the Swanton ballot that posed industrial wind turbine project. It’s like a bad joke about date rape (“I knew she meant yes even though she said no”) or something along those lines. Whomever was in charge of drafting that language might as well as been working for the corporate developer, since it appears as if its intent was to confuse the common person.
But on Tuesday, November 17th, voters of I Swanton get a chance to say YES to many things. Yes to save our eagles, loons, ospreys, bobcat and bear habitat. Yes to saving surrounding neighborhood families from the invasive health-destroying infrasound from the blades of industrial wind turbines.
Yes to save Fairfield Pond’s pristine water. Yes to protecting our planet from the likes of China’s dirty energy turbines.YES to OPPOSE industrial wind.
Please Vote YES on #1 & #2 to keep Vermont’s mountains just the way they are: green ecologicallyfriendly, and sacred to those who live here…and those that visit that will spend tourist dollars!
Still undecided? Tonight, Friday Nov. 13, 6:30 p.m. at the St. Albans Historical Museum, Ben Luce, Professor of Physics and Sustainability from Lyndon State College will bring to life several arguments of why utility-scale industrial wind development on mountainous ridgelines in Vermont is NOT a desirable or needed form of renewable energy.This event is free and open to the public.
Let’s hope you say yes to all of it!
