The brown strip from Nanticoke covers a lot larger area than 2 kilometers. I live in Dunnville, the effects of a coal plant burden my sky, lungs and the growing respiratory tract of my son. Wind power is not perfect, but it is an alternative. Through wind power 1% of the energy used in the United States comes from a clean, self regenerative source. That is a win.
I get a headache when my neighbour drives by with his car stereo booming. Perhaps I should have him removed from town as well?
Wind power is not meant as the be all, end all of energy fixes. But it is a step in the right direction. People need to see it as such.
There is a wind generator within 2 km of my house at Rosa Flora Greenhouses. I have suffered no ill effects. None of my neighbours have suffered any ill effects. No one in my family has suffered any ill effects.
I wonder how the people in Cheapside would feel about wind power replacing the coal plant that dusts their town with ash.
