Social Cost: A Few New Spins on Wind

By Steve Campbell, Countylive.ca

Much has already been said on the future of wind turbines in the County. I probably don’t need to retrace the steps which have already been covered, but I would like to offer a few new insights into Big Wind in the County.

I found it puzzling that someone like me ­ who would love to have a hand in changing our world for the better ­ can’t come to grips with Wind Farms here.
