  1. “33 turbines in three lines down the island – one on the north side, one on the south and one in between.”
    Who could welcome such industrialization? Very effective way to take up a large chunk of airspace. Wind is not free. We are all responsible for proper industrial siting.

  2. Just what facts do they have about safety and health issues? Safety issues are kept hidden and only phony health information is given to the public.
    The present government aids and abets wind evelopers with the phony health studies and noise/sound studies that the present government has done. Then there are the phony bird,bat and wildlife studies.
    But truth dosen’t matter to eco-nuts.
