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.
