And yes, citizens are leery of getting involved, of speaking out, of standing up.
But we must. The alternative is not acceptable. As sentient human beings with empathy and compassion and (one hopes) ethics, we can’t stand by and allow others to suffer.
By standing up, we are noticed. By standing TOGETHER we can create positive change and make a real difference.
Thank you for continuing to share the experiences of those around the globe who are brave enough to ‘stand’.

I just met Ms. Sonia Trist this morning. I watched the video. She broke my heart.
When I think of the dissimulating, posturing, pontiffs of “clean energy” and their mega windzillas, it makes my blood boil. They hide behind their ethnicity, position, academic credentials, and ultimately their legal, political and economic power to destroy the peaceful lives of country folk, like Ms. Trist, going to the lengths of one Steven Weisman, Partner in MinuteMan Wind, LLC. and V.P. of Peregrine Energy Group, a windpower consulting firm, who told The Patriot Ledger reporter Patrick Rowan, “…the protocol for where to locate turbines has evolved because of the complaints. The state (Massachusetts) is now advising firms to conduct noise studies earlier in the planning process.” (Imagine using the name of real patriots & a raptor that your wind choppers will kill, to make yourself look like some good-guy!)
What’s wrong with this is that it is merely a warning to developers to get their acoustics stooges into the set-up picture before the neighbors can complain. It also means that if the the developers are hiring the acousticians, its a cinch that the turbines will get the official rubber stamps to be put in.
The reporter goes on to say, “Despite the recent backlash, Weisman is confident that the turbine industry will survive and thrive. He said new developments tend to attract resistance.
As long as we countenance the antics and shenanigans of the likes of Weisman and his ilk, as long as these carpetbaggers are permitted to make a mockery of the law and to transgress upon the lives of the innocent, as long as the wind “turbine industry” is allowed to “survive and thrive,” there will be many more Sonia Trists and many more nameless children, driven from their beds and made crazy and sick in their schools where heedless communities have placed these wind monstrosities near to.
In the name of humanity and decency let’s put an end to this criminal enterprise, ONCE AND FOR ALL!
