    Dave Stetzer has been an electrician by training, education and experience for over 30 years. In 1975, Dave founded Stetzer Electric, Inc. and remains the president of the company to this day. Since the firm’s inception, Dave has specialized in power control in industry, municipalities, and motor control centers. For more than the past decade, Dave has focused more attention on power quality analysis and troubleshooting, which led to the founding of Stetzer Consulting. Dave Stetzer is a senior member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical & Electrical Engineers), an expert witness in litigation suits in ground currents and power quality, co-author of peer reviewed papers in journals, producer of the documentary ‘Beyond Coincidence: The Perils of Electrical Pollution’, consultant for Ministers of Health in Kazakhstan, Middle East and Government Health Officials in Russia. He continues to be a sought after, integral contributor in research projects around the world.

    Carmen M Krogh is a full time volunteer and published researcher regarding health effects and industrial wind energy facilities. She shares information with communities; individuals; federal, provincial and public health authorities, wind energy developers; the industry; and others. An author and a co-author of peer reviewed articles and conference papers presented at wind turbine noise scientific conferences. A retired pharmacist whose career includes: senior executive positions at a teaching hospital (Director of Pharmacy); a drug information researcher at another teaching hospital; a Director of a professional organization; a Consultant at the Bureau of Human Prescription Drugs (Health Canada); and a Director (A) at Health Canada (PMRA). She is the former Director of Publications and Editor in Chief of the Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties (CPS), the book used by physicians, nurses, and health professionals for prescribing information in Canada.

    Alan J Whiteley has been an attorney for over 30 years, is accredited by the Upper Canada Law Society, and has a consistently high rating with the Martindale-Hubbell Register of Pre-eminent Lawyers. He has been the Editor of University of Toronto Faculty of Law Review, negotiated government defence contracts, and served as counsel to the Security Intelligence Review Committee (Canada). His experience includes serving as counsel for the arbitration of international commercial disputes as well as having served as counsel for internationally-based aerospace and airport organizations. He is legal counsel for the County Coalition for Safe and Appropriate Green Energy (CCSAGE) based in Prince Edward County, and in this capacity has undertaken to challenge various aspects of Ontario’s Green Energy Act via a Judicial Review. Mr Whiteley will be participating on the panel discussion and offering observations on the hurdles to be overcome to obtain legal remedy from experiencing negative effects of IWTs.

    Barb Ashbee and her husband were happy and healthy before a wind turbine project started up around their home causing serious adverse health effects that drove them to leave. Testing in their home showed out of compliance noise, infrasound and electrical pollution. It was a battle to get any meaningful information or assistance from the government. After hiring a lawyer, they settled with the company, were able to relocate and their symptoms subsided after moving. Almost 10 years later, the anger and dismay at what the government is doing to citizens has not lessened as the toll rises. Barb continues to advocate for resolution for victims impacted by wind energy and has communicated with and attended countless government and community meetings over the years.

    Industrial wind turbines are being proposed in your community

    Industrial wind turbines are being proposed in your community.

    It may seem like a great opportunity but many people regret signing contracts, others regret not having fought them off and others have fought them off.

    These are the issues you should educate yourself on.

    1. Property values

    2. Electromagnetic and frequency interference

    3. Shadow flicker

    4. Noise

    5. Trespass zoning/safety

    6. Health concerns

    7. Farmland destruction

    8. Neighbor contracts

    9. No regulation, no due process, no protections

    10. Killing of wildlife

    11. Road destruction

    12. Suffering for the “greater good”

    12. Money

    Top sites to begin research. No, these folks are not funded by fossil fuels though the wind companies love to say it. All of these sites are purely volunteer, just doing what we believe to be right.

    Éolien: La révolte des territoires ruraux

    Aujourd’hui, en France, certains promoteurs éoliens tentent d’imposer leurs projets par la force, contraignant les riverains à créer des zones à défendre (ZAD) afin de préserver leur qualité de vie et d’empêcher le saccage industriel d’une nature rurale encore préservée.

    Depuis plus de 6 mois, dans plusieurs régions, des habitants de villages ruraux résistent aux forces de l’ordre envoyées par les autorités pour faire passer des convois acheminant des éoliennes par des petites routes de montagne ou de campagne, des chemins vicinaux, qu’il faut détruire, élargir, goudronner.

    Ces citoyens tentent d’empêcher des bulldozers de détruire des haies, d’arracher des arbres, de saccager des sites naturels. Ils refusent que des pelleteuses creusent de gigantesques cavités où seront déversés des milliers de tonnes de béton armé.

    Depuis plusieurs mois certains de ces résistants sont trainés devant les tribunaux comme des coupables de droit commun, alors que ces initiatives de désespoir sont le résultat de l’immense mépris des responsables du gouvernement et de l’indifférence du Ministre de l’Environnement Nicolas Hulot.

    Deux exemples emblématiques font la une des médias régionaux, deux collectifs anti-éoliens qui luttent jour et nuit depuis des mois :

    Le collectif des riverains de Bouriège qui résistent sur le pont du REC dans l’Aude

    L’Amassada de l’Aveyron qui refuse les 1000 éoliennes programmées, et le méga-transformateur d’EDF à Saint Victor de Melvieu

    La Fédération Environnement Durable regroupe un millier d’associations de toutes les régions de France. Elle n’utilise que des moyens légaux pour lutter contre l’envahissement de l’habitat rural par l’éolien industriel.

    Elle approuve le bien fondé du refus des projets éoliens concernés et lance une alerte : à terme, ces conflits risquent de conduire à des affrontements désespérés de plus en plus violents.

    La Fédération Environnement Durable estime que le gouvernement en portera l’entière responsabilité en voulant imposer le développement de l’éolien industriel par la force, et par des mesures de régression du droit de l’environnement par l’effet de la simplification des procédures juridiques.

    Deerfield Wind, Green Mountain National Forest, Vermont

    Wind energy development on United States Forest Service land in Readsboro and Searsburg is mountaintop quarrying.

    The Green Mountain National Forest got a new superhighway for trucks carrying loads of more than 200,000 pounds to elevations above 3000 feet. The bears got a new bridge.
