Do you want county covered by turbines?
People of Tipton County: I come to you to ask each of you to take the time to think of a future in Tipton County when you won’t be able to look in any direction without seeing wind turbines.
I know a lot of you are tired of hearing the arguing back and forth over this issue and feel you have no dog in this fight. But you most certainly do if you just take the time to think for just a minute or two.
As a friend of mine told me, can you imagine, as your child grows up, wanting to capture the loving moments on film. If we don’t repeal this wind ordinance, almost every picture we take of the children outdoors will have a giant wind turbine in the background.
The plan here, folks, by the wind companies — and supported by some of your elected officials and a few landowners — is to cover your beautiful county with 800 of these giants! This is not a novelty but pure destruction of our countryside.
The time is rapidly approaching for a public meeting that will decide the future for many of us for a lifetime. I am 58 years old and maybe just a little biased on the county we live in today. But I would like my grandchildren and all of your children to be able to enjoy the beautiful county the good Lord gave us!
We can find all the information you want, pro and con, but it all boils down to no one knows for sure what the long-term medical problems are with these things. People from around the world are opening up and telling of all kinds of issues. Most experts will admit there needs to be studies to understand what impacts can happen to people around these things.
