Writer takes exception to philosopher’s poetry

To the Expositor

Letter writer Phil Dabous is misled about large-scale wind power on several fronts, but I take issue with his accusation that people opposing the industrial power generation projects so close to homes and on our beautiful landscapes are “dissembling” (‘Wind farms opposition framed by Island philosopher,’ July 25, page 4).

As president of Wind Concerns Ontario, I hear daily from people whose lives are now unbearable due to the noise and vibration from these machines. The health effects are there, and they are being reported around the world. Why would people go so far as to actually leave their homes if they did not truly believe their health is being harmed? Mr. Dabous’ statements may seem poetic and philosophical, but in truth he is insulting and uninformed.
