Clear Creek Death Trip: Wind Turbine Syndrome Devastates a Community (Ontario)

Aug 11, 2012


—Stephana Johnston (Clear Creek, Ontario, Canada)

The tiny community of Clear Creek/Cultus/Frogmore Ontario (Canada) consists of approximately 140 houses and 18 Vestas 1.65 MW wind turbines.  The turbines and homes are all jammed within a 3 km radius.

In the summer of 2009, approximately 70 residents reported they were being affected by the turbines’ relentless pounding.  Here is a “back of the envelope” report on what has transpired in this community since 2009:

» One successful suicide.  (The woman’s home was subsequently purchased at a “fire sale” price by a marijuana growing operation.)

» One unsuccessful suicide, with that individual simply leaving.

» The house next to mine was abandoned by the couple who had been living there, and it was subsequently torched by an arsonist.

» Between 6 and 9 houses have been abandoned.

» There are approximately 8 vacant houses with “for sale” signs out front.

» There are approximately 7 occupied houses with “for sale” signs out front.

» Two individuals have been placed in long-term care by their families.  (One of these people was found wandering 15 km from home at 3 am).

» One pregnant woman lost her baby in the 2nd trimester.

» One person died after valiant intensive care for 3 months.

» One person experienced a heart attack.

» One person suffered a stroke.

» 3 individuals had heart bypass surgery.

» An unknown number of families have silently folded their belongings and moved away.

Where in the world have so many adverse effects taken place in such a tiny community (3 km radius, approx. 25 sq km) in such a short period of time (45 months)?

Like many others, I’m an Industrial Wind Turbine refugee looking for an affordable place to sleep, returning to an unsellable house for laundering, showering, evening meal prep, using the land telephone line and computer, always aware of the need to leave to make it to the sleeping den in a bunkhouse at a forestry camp 28 km away from this toxic house.

Knowing that change is the one “constant” in life, I look forward to the end of the wind turbine insanity and a return to global rationality.

Editor’s note:  Another resident, and victim of WTS, living in the Clear Creek/Cultus/Frogmore windplant has added this addendum:

» 2 more people, different households, both became diabetic.  One had an amputation.  Both died.

    To add to that community list:
    2 more people, different households, both diabetic; one had an amputation… both died

    One wonders why the arsonist chose a victim’s house rather than a more logical target, the source of all the collective community suffering. A form of psychological displacement, perhaps?

    What will it take? before the rest of the people to wake up and realise how bad these Monster Turbines really are ? this Town sounds like my town in South Australia, I wish for all affected just to be able to move out, the only problem we found here in our Town is where to move, my brother has moved twice and these things keep following him, and he is looking to move again, as there talking to increase Waterloo to stage 2 , that will take the count from 37 X 3 mgw units to 44 of them, I have moved twice my self, the first time in my Mothers shed, and I stayed there for just over one year, now I’m staying with thanks to my brother at his Home until I can find a new place of my own.
    I wish you all well.

    Many thanks to Fiona for adding the new information about the two newly diagnosed diabetics, one of whom has died.

    As Sherri says, there is a number missing in the second paragraph of the account above: ………approximately 70 residents reported…..

    Given those who have moved away or died, we are soon likely to have only half of the ~ 70 signatories of our petition still grinning and bearing it in the CC/C/F IWT ZONE when the 4 year anniversary day of infamy arrives.

    And just to repeat again, all the above adverse events took place within a 3 km radius, ~ 25 sq km community WITHIN a 45 month time frame.

    Editor’s note: Oops, sorry for the missing number “70.” It’s been inserted.

    Dear friends,

    I have only just returned from a trip to the Massachusetts east coast. I was appalled to see the gigantic “Independence” monster hanging over Route 3, in Kingston, MA. I know that it is sited 1200 feet from a public school. Those kids are mandated by the state to stay in that building. Must we wait for them to succumb to the “mysterious” effects of WTS? Shouldn’t Gov. Deval Patrick be charged with crimes against humanity? What court would hear such a case?

    After we passed the Springfield area, heading west, we passed a convoy of three enormous wind turbine blades going east. We think they were heading toward Route 91 North, to get off on Route 2 West, going to the Hoosic windplant, under construction in Florida and Monroe, MA. The Abbott Memorial School in Florida is about a mile away from the nearest 1.5 MW machine. This is well within the two mile impact radius discerned by Ambrose and Rand in Falmouth.

    We are looking at an international humanitarian crisis. UNESCO is charged with assuring the health outcomes of the children of the world. There is a terrible disconnect between what is happening and their awareness. Adults are being hammered into oblivion by their local and national governments. Only an international court of justice could have the stature to intercede.

    What shall we do first?

    Such a shame!

    What shall we do first? Drill baby, drill!!!

    We are sitting on perhaps the world’s largest oil supply, too politically correct for a little common sense!

    Follow the money!
