I read Mr. Glennie’s letter declaring that most people support industrial wind turbines. Maybe he is using the poll commissioned and paid for by the wind industry. Wind companies also like to display this poll at their two required promotional public meetings.
I have seen a number of polls by local papers and radio stations from across this province asking one clear and simple question requiring a yes or no to turbines. Results show most do not want industrial wind turbines.
You are quick to dismiss health concerns Mr. Glennie. I doubt that you have ever spoken to any of the people who’ve had their lives and health so tragically effected by the startup of turbines nearby. Your cold dismissal and lack of concern for what these people have been through is chilling.
The adverse health effects people have experienced from the few turbine installations in Ontario can’t be denied. I have spoken to or received mail from at least 200 people who were brave enough to speak out about what was happening to them even in the face of dimsighted and dimwitted words that try to deny or make light of what is happening to them.
They are not imaginary people spouting “pseudo-scientific” information as you put it Mr. Glennie. They are hard-working people who have been terribly hurt. There is peer reviewed science to tell you all about it if you take time to look.
How ludicrous is it to use a poll as one of the reasons to move forward with an energy policy that hurts all of us in one way or another?
I would prefer to use available solid science before making a decision to put thousands more turbines up in our province.
