Locals Take Wind Industry to UN Over Its Destruction of Ontario’s Water Supply

The wind industry has all but destroyed water supplies in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. Hammering hundreds of giant steel piles (the foundations for 300 tonne turbines) into the aquifer across the county has turned once potable water into a grimy, toxic sludge.

Wind Farm Neighbours Forced to Sign Away All Legal Rights in ‘Good Neighbour Agreements’

Remember all those glowing stories about wind power outfits being welcomed into rural communities with open arms?
