Wind power doesn't deliver the goods

Dear Editor,

For those of you who believe that renewable wind energy (industrial wind turbines) and new transmission lines are a sign of progress in clean renewable energy and that those of us complaining about being forced to live in the middle of it are impeding progress, please read on.

I read about the new Bruce to Milton Transmission Line last week and about some of the impact it will have with its construction. I find it appalling that those lines will affect 360 properties and that 30 families will be forced to accept an offer from a Hydro One-appointed appraiser or face having their land expropriated.

Are you, dear reader, one of the people paying that high of a price for what you claim is progress? Are you one of the people paying the price of living with a 400-foot industrial wind turbine parked nice and close to your house, along with all the health, noise, collapse and ice throw concerns that go along with it? You may escape those personal costs, but you are most definitely paying the financial cost of government subsidies to wind developers.

Wind power does not deliver the goods.

Despite the existence of 50,000 turbines worldwide, there is no evidence that windpower reduces CO2 emissions or dependence on other forms of energy. The whole idea of a so called environmentally friendly renewable energy source has simply become a highly subsidized destruction of our rural countryside.
