Wind turbines take a heavy toll on habitat, ecosystems and views

Those trying to promote wind turbines on Lake Erie do so for their own benefit, at great expense to taxpayers, with little regard for the residents of Northeast Ohio, whose views will be forever destroyed.

Wind power poses a threat to all life through degradation of habitat and disruption of ecosystems that maintain life on Earth. Wind turbines on Lake Erie will disturb marine life and winged creatures by invading their environment, possibly compromising the source of 17 percent of the world's fresh water.

Bats lungs are exploding from the change in air pressure as they approach the turbines, and livestock exposed to turbine noise are perishing from lack of sleep. On land or on water, these industrial machines have the capability to drive all creatures, human and otherwise, from their living space.

Since it takes 450 wind turbines fragmenting four acres each to equal one nuclear power plant, how is this environmentally sound? Wind power is inefficient, producing electricity only about 25 percent of the time. This source of power can never be relied upon and will do nothing to reduce dependence on foreign oil.

Ask yourself if the wind is blowing today. At best, Cleveland has marginal wind. Yet those invested in this technology continue to focus on promoting their self-interest while trying to turn the lakefront into their own private industrial site.

Search the Internet for Cape Wind or visit wind-watch.org for letters from people around the globe who are trying to protect the world from this environmentally invasive technology. For a very good article on the effects of wind, see wind-watch.org/news/2009/08/09/has-everyone-completely-lost-their-minds. Instead of sustainability, they should call it smoke and mirrors. Wind . . . leave my state alone.
