Industrial wind turbines don’t solve any problems

by Antony John, Host of Manic Organic, Food Network
Stratford Beacon Herald

My name is Antony John. I am an organic farmer of 20 years in Sebringville, soon to be an organic farmer living too close to 490-foot industrial wind turbines.

At first glance it may seem odd that one of the most committed environmentalists in Perth County should come out against industrial wind turbines (IWTs). After considerable personal research, including the Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI) alternative energy summit held this June at the Perimeter Institute, I have come to the conclusion that IWTs will never provide the green energy they promise, and there will be considerable damage to wildlife, agricultural land, community spirit, land values and, perhaps most importantly, human health.

    Please note that the headline for this letter in the newspaper was “IWT’s Solve One Problem While Creating Others.” The title has been changed to reflect Antony John’s intention – Industrial turbines don’t solve any problems.
