Windmills and Environmentalists

Dear Editor;
John Curran wrote an excellent letter to the editor last week in which he pointed out one of many economists and scientists who question the validity of wind and solar power. I take exception to one minor point that "environmentalists think they have found a magic solution for energy on earth in the form of wind and solar power". John, I suspect we are both environmentalists who care deeply about this planet and even more about the people in our community. This is not a debate about the validity of climate change, this is a debate about how the problem should be solved by investing in research and development to create viable and sustainable energy that doesn't do great harm to communities. We can do both. This is an objection to big government and giant corporations shoving these wind towers down our throats will no remedy provided for the little people. Keep writing great letters!

THE ONLY GREEN IN THESE WIND TURBINES IS THE MONEY THAT IS TRANSFERRED!.
Wind turbines create sub-sonic pulses of 6 to 8 Hertz sound that create harm heart palpitations, migraines, headaches, memory loss, depression, loss of memory,, sickness to all organs of your body. Your ears cannot hear the sound but your body can take on these negative sounds which can harm you. There can be vibrations in your mattress, your bed, your walls, your whole house. Do not take my word for it just ask the people that have had to move from their homes because of these negative vibrations and sounds .

Dear Editor
THE ONLY THING GREEN IN THESE 171 WIND TURBINES IS THE MONEY!
1) What education and information has the three counties Grant, Iowa, and Lafayette offered to the public (including landowners and residents) concerning the human and animal health problems due to hearing sub-sonic pulses up to 35 miles away, water and air quality, environmental problems and etc.
2) What education and information
have these counties offed about the dangers of these contracts due to the gag rule of no speaking which maybe unconstitutional by the first amendment.
3) Other companies purchasing these contracts and then not paying the full price to the landowner?
4) The company putting up service roads and placing the windmill where ever the company wants to place it on the landowners land. The landowner giving up ALL of their rights on their land. . ..
5) Your neighbor is having to live next door with flickering lights, swishing sounds, harmful health problems of sub-sonic pulses, towering wind turbines and etc.
