WPEG On Line Petition

The WPEG group has an on-line petition for people to sign. The petition is in response to Governor Paterson's remark during his Northside Improvement League visit in January.

He commented about being selective in siting wind turbines. His comment came as a response to someone expressing their concern about wind turbines being placed along the St. Lawrence River communities, he was interpreted as sharing their concerns.

Governor - These people are serious about holding you to your word!

Here is the petition. 

Petition For Moratorium On Wind Energy Development

This document is absolutely ridiculous. It has the stench of desperation. They've tried everything else, and nothing has worked (not even lawsuits), so now they go crying to the governor.

We don't have a Governor.

I say who cares about wind power. We have cheap oil and gas right now. Let's not worry about energy until we have to.

Green, renewable, sustainable, earth friendly, and all that.

Forever. Or at least until we have another problem.

These grumps don't give two pinecones for the environment.

They just don't want change. Change scares them. And they hate any business development. They hate anything that draws young families into the area.

Yeah, you got it JJ. We've been so successful bringin' young people into the area, we just want to keep up the good work. All that business development we've been experiencing is scaring us.


Excuse me while I go out back and burn some plastic.

Don't worry, it's biodegradable green plastic. Not connected with that terrible wind power in any way.
