Help needed to fight government funded Wind albatross spending
Indiana has been infected with a plague of windmills. These machines have already been built in large installations in Indiana including north of Lafayette, east of Fort Wayne, and now encroaching on Grant, Madison, and counties to the east.
While the idea of wind turbines is to make so called “green” energy and a competitive cost, none of that is the case. The machines are not green, and we end up still having to burn coal, oil, gas, and nuclear in order to operate our homes, businesses, and factories. Among other problems, a lot of the time the wind just doesn’t blow when you need it. Or even when you don’t. And the produced electricity costs about double what you are paying now.
So we need your help to stop this taxpayer funded boondoggle. We need people to educate others, wirte letters to the editor of all your local papers, call and write/fax your elected representatives, call in to local radio stations, etc. The time is short and action within the next week is imperative.
The problem is this is such a divisive issue that many won’t come out and openly oppose this. I keep running into this. Spouses are divided. Friends divided, families divided, churches divided. People are afraid to sign a petition or speak out. They are afraid of losing friends, or customers in their business, or there is pressure from family.
Don’t be cowed and controlled by these pressures, but instead get the facts and make some calls.
Below are some sample discussions, links to stories etc. Check this and other future emails for attachments that may contain additonal information.
How can you help? Read the links below. Note that some are quite extensive. You don’t have to read them all before taking some action. Just read some and get some knowledge on some areas in question. Then write letters to the editor in your local newspapers, write – call – fax your state senators and representatives and local mayors and county officials. Ask them if they are aware of the facts you have discovered and ask why they think it is a good idea. For instance, why should we subsidize electricity that is only on intermittently, and costs double or more of the electricity we have used all along.
And importantly, keep it up. Write continuing letters to the editors once a week for instance.
Thank you. (note, more emails and/or posts here on the topic may follow)
