Thank you for visiting!
WeGRAIT is strongly opposed to the widespread deployment of wind turbines in Ontario, namely in our own community of West Grey. We are not an “official” organization or group, but rather an Internet location where local residents can visit to keep up to date on current news, events and other related information. By becoming informed, you will have the tools you need to take your own action and be effective.
Be your own leader in spreading awareness in our community!
(all these topics can be backed up by credible, verifiable information)
(1) Many thousands of wind turbines would have to litter our picturesque rural Ontario landscape to have any significant impact on reduction in legacy power production.
(2) Wind energy is tremendously expensive and will equate to much higher taxes and electricity costs. You think times are tough now?
(3) Numerous complaints from residents near current wind farms paint a clear picture of the health affects large turbines can impose on some residents.
(4) Wind farms will dramatically reduce area property values. They deter potential property buyers from the area.
(5) Wind energy is not as “green” as many may believe. Often, large scale wind development has a negative impact on local wildlife and the surrounding environment.
(6) …and finally, if you haven’t already heard, note that the credibility within the science of man-made global warming is being called into question more and more each day. Look into “climategate” and “glaciergate”, for example.
PLEASE HELP STOP THE INDUSTRIALIZATION OF OUR PICTURESQUE RURAL LANDSCAPE! WE DON’T NEED TO DO THIS.
