Excerpt:

               
“Urban Ontario, including city-bound journalists, are largely unaware of the corrosive effects some wind developments are having for communities, neighborhoods, even families. Many folks valuing peace and quiet in the countryside don’t see industrialization as a benefit. Rural residential land values, particularly in picturesque recreation and retirement oriented regions are crashing where wind power is developing. This is expropriation without compensation.” – Tom Adams
     

“The truth is that all the wind turbines in all the world can’t run a toaster, let alone a home, on their own. It is a lie that is repeated in virtually every news story on wind or solar development.” – Rick Conroy
