Re: “Deadline Looms for Comments on Controversial Wind Power Project

Here is a sampling of industrial wind turbine information. Many of these are folks who welcomed them as the solution to global warming only to find out that they are really your worst nightmare: https://www.wind-watch.org/ ; http://wiseenergy.org/key-documents/ http://epaw.org/about_us.php?lang=en ; https://windfarmrealities.org/?p=32#more-32 ; http://en.friends-against-wind.org/testimonies/submission-of-peter-jelbart ; http://www.windvictimsontario.com/vowcopy-ndash-victims-of-wind.html https://mothersagainstturbines.com/ ; http://archive.kmudfm.org/ archive/index.php ....Ken Miller talks about the Monument Ridge project on KMUD click on 'Monday Morning Magazine Part 2' from Monday May 27 2019 8:00 AM.

Re: “Deadline Looms for Comments on Controversial Wind Power Project

According to the University of California the Humboldt forests are part of the most carbon dense storage in the USA. If you Google "wind turbine fires" you'll find out that these industrial wind turbines do not belong in the windiest spot we have surrounded by tinder dry grasslands and timber just upwind of the largest remaining stand of old growth redwoods in the world. Terra Gen has admitted they have never done anything like this in an area like this. They need to be stopped.

Wind Turbine Fires Signal End of Land-Based Wind Turbines
Posted by Long Islander on April 5, 2018 at 7:48pm

Hanover, Massachusetts, Oklahoma and Presque Isle, Maine have all seen dramatic wind turbine fires in the last few weeks.

The obvious challenge facing firefighters is the height involved if a fire occurs in the turbine motor.

Due to the risk of falling fire debris over a wide area, approaching a burning turbine is usually not an option unless there is a life risk involved. If the turbine is turning, power is being generated and an electrocution hazard will be present.

Typically, a good option for firefighters to consider is to evacuate any endangered areas, set up a collapse zone, and attempt to control any ground fires to prevent the fire from spreading to other units.

In the case of a runaway or over-speed event, rotating turbines can throw debris thousands of feet away during a blade failure. Pieces of blades have been documented in California as traveling over 4,200 feet. Distance and time will fix this problem.

Pre-incident planning and Standard Operation Procedure development are keys to success for safely handling this unique danger.

Between 2005 and 2009 the news media and politicians touted commercial land-based wind turbines. Today your not going to read about the ongoing health, financial fiasco and now mechanical breakdowns resulting in massive fires.
