Save Coteau Prairie Landscape

Greetings,

    Wind mills are a good thing for personal use. If property owners want to put one next to their own house, barn or on top of their business establishment, that's just fine. But to have 3-5 hundred huge industrial wind turbines (as proposed by the Hartland wind farm for northwestern ND) put in the face of all man and wildlife currently enjoying the natural landscape and solitude of this region is wrong. And the issues here are not just visual or local. The production of transmission lines to support this project will impact landowners and wildlife across this state.

Wind Industry Could be the Greatest Scam of Our Age - and three 'lies' that prove it

"the biggest scam" ... EUROPE'S ILL WIND

Wind Farms ... "They do more harm than good" - Eric Rosenbloom
Wind Farms ...
"a fool's errand" - Diemer True - Wyoming landowner
Wind Farms ... "obsolete technology in 10 years" - Bill Sebastian - Texas landowner

     Questions:  What will happen when the wind industry collapses?  Who would be responsible for the broken or worn out turbines? Will government require landowners who have received money from turbines, and participating electric cooperatives, to either repair or remove these structures from the landscape? Or will  the taxpayer just get jabbed again if the government ends up with a mess like this? Dealing with issues related to some of these questions has already surfaced in California involving six landowners. Read here:

LANDOWNER ALERT - (updated regularly) "People who say 'You can't tell me what to do with my property' are in actuality signing away the control of their property to wind companies in signing these leases." - Barbara Boone (Source) Industrial Wind Action Group.

    As the true story about industrial wind energy continues to unfold, so comes the growing number of opposition organizations in the U.S., Canada and world wide. Just look on the Affiliates page of the Wind-Watch web site. If this doesn't open eyes, I don't know what will. The Video archives also offers more real life facts about the wind industry. And be sure to view www.windturbinesyndrome.com, www.windtoons.com and the other two sites at the bottom of this page.

    Check out the two pages of photos that I've taken over the years. Back in the 1990s, I took aerial photographs for the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. Most of the wetland pictures were taken at 7,000 feet. All photos were taken in, above or adjacent to the Coteau hills of Burke, Mountrail and Ward counties; a home of myself, parents, grandparents and great grandparents. These unique prairie images could be lost if wind turbines are imposed upon our landscape.

Sincerely,
Marty Jorgenson, Minot, ND        jorge@minot.com
