Sometimes I have to force myself to write a single line, because I’m so spitting mad – this is one of those times. Just look through these pictures taken on a “nice country drive” along the border of Lambton and Middlesex counties, where 92, no… plus 44, oh and 45, 38, 20 turbines are going up. You do the math. And all the transmission lines need to connect them to the grid. So you have to sacrifice a pile of beautiful oak trees, no biggie – it’s all to help the big green dream. Trust Toronto, they know what “green” looks like – not an oak tree (you silly country bumpkins!) – wind turbines and steel trans poles are the image of “natural”!
Then there is the proximity of these poles to our roadways- what the hell – they are FEET from the road! Is anyone monitoring this? Where are the road supervisors? The OPP? The Ministry of Transportation (I know, tack a LOL on that). Except there is nothing funny about this at all.
