What is it going to be Vermont? Our natural beauty. The mountains and ridge lines that we call home. The beauty our ancestors enjoyed as they worked this land. The beauty that draws thousands here yearly to enjoy our special spot in the world. The beautiful landscape that we owe to our children to keep in a natural state for them and their families to enjoy…
Or is it going to be the Greed. The Greed of industrial wind machines towering over us. Seen in all directions for miles and miles. A night sky full of blinking red lights.The greed and selfishness of taking something away from all of us and all who come after us. Giving in to self serving landowners and large corporate entities who profit by taking away from everyone that lives or visits here.
This is not progress. This is not advancement. This is not beneficial to us as a people or a state. This is destruction.
This is greed.
Please fellow Vermonters the time is now. Do not make Vermont us the Industrial windmill state. We are too small, too beautiful and hopefully too caring of our environment and the environment we would like to leave our kids and grand kids to allow this. Stand together and just say no.
