Fighting for Air: Communities Rally to Stop Wind Projects Wrecking Local Airports

All power generation comes with risk. However, those risks are traded off against the immeasurable societal benefits provided by reliable and affordable electricity.

Where the power source is wholly weather dependent – and the industry that profits from it wholly dependent upon massive and endless subsidies and, therefore, wholly unsustainable – there is nothing to trade off worth the lives of those who take to the skies, particularly for a living.

In short, wind power creates a whole raft of wholly unnecessary risks to life and limb, not least for pilots and their passengers.

Here’s a couple of stories about communities fighting back to retain their right to take to the skies. The first from Victoria in Australia, the second from Simcoe County, Ontario.
