Look at these websites: www.responsiblewind.org,
www.wind-watch.org, www.windaction.org, www.stopillwind.org
. There are many more.
Locally we have www.laurelmountainpreservationassociation.org
and www.windtoons.com with
its copyright-free cartoons. Check the websites for all the Friends of Beautiful Pendleton
County , Friends of the
Allegheny Front, Friends of Blackwater, Protect Pendleton
, etc. Watch the slide shows
of the Allegheny Highlands, of the Altamont bird kills (I quit part
way through that one.) and the burning, crumbling, toppled giant
wind turbines (My favorite. Where was West Virginia news coverage on
the Mt. Storm and Backbone Mountain turbine fires?) GoogleEarth
Search "Mount Storm, Grant County, WV" and "Meyersdale, PA" and look
down at the damage. Google NewsSearch for companies involved and
check their activities around the world; check their litigation
Please. Do something, Fast.
When your economic stimulus dollars arrive, why not put them
towards further weatherizing your house to save energy. Yes! In my
backyard , the wise owl says, Every watt saved is another watt
earned. If thatís finished, why not buy an automated roof-top or
gable solar attic fan. And reduce the area you mow, plant
bird-feeding and sheltering perennials, shrubs and trees, and cut
whatís left with a small battery-powered electric mower, preferably
solar-charged. (True, all equipment has a carbon footprint.) If
every Conservancy member did these things and served as a role model
for the neighborhood ÖÖ Yimby!
And please support the Allegheny Front lawsuit.
While Iím beseeching - about 20 years ago, I asked why the

herbicided, pesticided, bollreleased, chlorine-bleached (etc.)
cotton t-shirts? Well?
