    Éolien: La révolte des territoires ruraux

    Aujourd’hui, en France, certains promoteurs éoliens tentent d’imposer leurs projets par la force, contraignant les riverains à créer des zones à défendre (ZAD) afin de préserver leur qualité de vie et d’empêcher le saccage industriel d’une nature rurale encore préservée. Depuis plus de 6 mois, dans plusieurs régions, des habitants de villages ruraux résistent aux forces de l’ordre envoyées par les autorités pour faire passer des convois acheminant des éoliennes par des petites routes de montagne ou de campagne, des . . .

    Deerfield Wind, Green Mountain National Forest, Vermont

    Wind energy development on United States Forest Service land in Readsboro and Searsburg is mountaintop quarrying. The Green Mountain National Forest got a new superhighway for trucks carrying loads of more than 200,000 pounds to elevations above 3000 feet. The bears got a new bridge.

    Wind Energy and Birds: Take Action

    What can our readers do to support bird-smart wind energy solutions? First, understand that although climate change is real and must be addressed, we should not be rushing to deploy solutions that damage our continent’s ecologically and economically important birds and bats and their habitats. Beyond their inherent value, these animals perform critical ecological services – such as pest control, pollination, and seed dispersal – that are worth billions of dollars to national economies and enhance the quality of all our lives . . .

    Encouragement and hope

    FYI and to encourage and give hope to other communities confronted with a seemingly fruitless battle against wind farms, I offer you an overview of our fight and so far, victory and our new challenge. Friends of the Grande Ronde Valley (FGRV) gathered together and began its fight against the 161 wind turbines of the proposed Antelope Ridge Wind Farm sometime in late 2009. With the strong leadership of Dennis and Pamela Wilkerson FGRV was able to fully utilize and . . .

    800-pound gorilla

    I got back from Iraq in 2007 with two turbines within 1,000′ across the road on a neighbor’s property. Then the noise started, followed by shadow flicker when fall rolled around. I contacted my Jackson County Minnesota planning & zoning director who said everything was done to state specifications. He gave me the contact information to the company that was managing the wind turbines. That started a long battle with are they noisy, how noisy are they, there is no . . .
