Wind supporter takes shot at wind fighters
The Kincardine News
Our family attended several council meetings in the past because we truly care about our community and the many issues that determine our future.
My children do not really like to come because of the hostile behaviour from some citizens and propaganda language being used when it comes to wind energy.
They know that the term "industrial" as an adjective for wind turbines is the result of a series of focus groups financed by one of the Koch brothers as part of his opposition to a proposed offshore wind project near Cape Cod.
At times we too feel misrepresented by our council and citizen representative but that is part of the process in real life.
To attack a fellow citizen in public is just another step to divide our community.
Please pick up the phone or even better go to the person that you feel has done something wrong and speak directly to him or her in a civil and rational manner. I know from experience that it can resolve many misunderstandings and lead to a better society.
There were times when I felt as though the radio might be the safest way for me to express my views about renewable energy. Many friends of wind in Ontario are thinking that the greatest health hazard related to wind energy is speaking out in support for wind energy!
ReNew Canada published a comprehensive report on wind energy in Ontario last year. Its conclusion states " Wind Concerns Ontario could not adequately provide evidence to support its claims." It has used material out of context, provided facts without support, and has firmly put the burden of proof on the proponents of wind rather than having to prove its own statements."
Look at the big picture of energy options that we are being offered right now, join hands, compromise and start developing a plan together!
