I would like to commend Lisa of the Pugwash wind farm blog for all her hard work. Having read her blog from time to time I know she has put up with more than her share of ugly comments and even threats as she worked to inform the local population about real problems concerning wind turbines. Lisa, I hope this is the end to the wind farm threat in your area.
Pugwash wind farm dead
Last week at the candidate forum organised by the Pugwash Chamber of Commerce, Warden Keith Hunter stated that because of local opposition to a proposed wind “farm” on the Gulf Shore, it did not go ahead. He said he helped intervene on our behalf in a conversation with (then) Minister of Environment, Mark Parent. All four candidates agreed that turbines should not intrude on the neighbouring property owners. People should be able to enjoy their properties. They all agreed that wind energy, along with other forms of renewable energy, is part of what we should be doing as a Province to reduce greenhouse gases but, for a variety of reasons, they should not be placed too close to homes.

Why did it take so long to come to this decision?
There is an election coming up and it appears all the candidates are feeling the pressure of the electorate.
All the candidates say they want more renewable energy but they all backed down from the Pugwash windfarm. Is pressure the only thing that gets the attention of our elected officials. It appears that way. We need politicians that can think for themselves not those that merely react to pressure.
Anyway, it seems they are all still riding the “global warming/climate change train”. I guess they will change their minds on that as soon as the public wakes up to the scam and puts the pressure on their elected officials. Until that time they will continue to be spokespersons for the UN/Gore/Suzuki scam.
