WTS, Hello Cape Vincent


A soon to be released study of the health effects of living near wind turbines challenges the popular image of the graceful, benign windmill gently coaxing free megawatts from the passing zephyrs.

Dr. Nina Pierpont, a New York pediatrician, has studied subjects who live near windmills in the U.S., the U.K., Italy, Ireland and Canada for the last five years. She concludes that some, but not all, of the near-windmill dwellers show signs of a newly-identified health risk which she calls Wind Turbine Syndrome, or WTS.

You will be able to take all that revenue the County wants to steal from the locals who have to put up with the mess and build a psychiatric center.

It is amazing that no one has looked into the multiple deaths caused by the ice sling from the turbine blades, especially considering the fact that we will have a cold climate for a few more years.

Compare these maladies with those associated with other forms of power generation. Emissions for coal plants? Destroyed ecosystems from hydro projects? The gov't will never allow us to know the number of deaths assoicated with nuclear power plants in this country.

Where is the outrage?

De nuts are out on this one.
Turn in the keys to your landrover, LL. Time to make some sacrifices.

I don't own a car. I walk, bike, roller blade or take the C train.

You roller blade?

That explains lots of things.

I wish you hadn't shared that with us.

"You roller blade?"

Yes, my mom skated for the Gotham girls. It's in our blood.

You ride an ATV?

After assessing all the posts about all the topics makes me wonder, "What the f**k would make people happy around here, anyway?"

It sure ain't government (except on their selfish, narrow terms) - so I guess the alternative is Ann Archy?
