Trouble in Paradise on Wind Wise Radio
This Sunday at 7:00 pm, Wind Wise Radio will interview people in Hawaii and Arizona who are fighting industrial wind deployment in environmentally sensitive and culturally important natural areas. Host Harley Keisch talks with activists, reviews the week’s headlines, and encourages listener calls.
We will be talking with leaders on Lana’i, on Molokai, and in Arizona’s Canyon Country who are all standing up to Big Wind’s deep pockets, greedy corporations, hordes of lobbyists, and misguided politicians.
There is a dangerous trend brewing as even precious unspoiled places with regional or world wide significance are being prospected and proposed for industrial scale wind development. For example, this past week in California a vote to approve a project on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands, the Deerfield Wind project in Green Mountain National Forest is being fast tracked by the Feds, the Gallitzin State Forest in Pennsylvania is threatened by IWT. The country around the Grand Canyon is targeted for industrialization. On Lana’i and Molokai the storm clouds have gathered. The forces arrayed against these precious places are numerous, well funded, and well protected. We have only the truth and our voices.
