Turbines attract no one and drive people away. Yet our commissioners told us they aren’t interested in facts.
Turbines aren’t green! Much mining is required to acquire metals to construct them. Smelting metals takes coal. Making one 500-foot turbine is like manufacturing 100 automobiles. To make the millions of yards of concrete, rock has to be heated to at least 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit using fossil fuel. The turbines, up 300 feet, each contain 200 gallons of oil that can leak or catch fire.
Turbines don’t save fossil fuel, they waste it while creating inefficient, costly energy, if the wind blows.
Gays, abortionists and illegals have rights. However, the citizens of Howard County have no rights! A German wind company dictates to our county, forcing us to live with these Chinese-made turbines. Our citizens are ignored, not allowed to say no.
Months of research was done by citizens to prove the folly of this enterprise, yet our commissioners are sentencing all of Howard County to a planned disaster. Is it right that three men have the power to foist such a catastrophe upon us all?
