Re: “The Wind Divide

Bravo Ellin - As one of the individuals listed on a recent Shell report as living in a home that would need to be "removed" to allow for better truck access to this project.( An asphalt petroleum based road) I cannot begin to tell you the IMPACT this has on me. Certainly tearing down homes is not GREEN. Every Ferndale resident must now and for the next 20 years disclose this project if they are considering selling their homes. Those living on main access routes should already be seeing their values plummet and in the case of my home values disappear all together. Especially since Shell has now acknowledged that this is a many phase project spread out over decades. Do you think most homeowners collectively care about how GREEN this project is proposed to be? Especially if in already bad economic times their homes are devalued 25%, 50% or more. Hard for me to imagine GREEN would trump over home ownership. Each and every tower will be lighted with a red light for aeronautical reasons. An FDA requirement. All night long. So long to our wonderful velvet night skies. Visual pollution is not GREEN.
Each turning blade will "WOOSH".all the time. Presently many Ferndale residents can hear the ocean on quiet nights. I would not count on being able to ever hear that sound again post construction. The calming sound of the ocean at night can only help contribute to the generally well being of the people who live here in Ferndale. I am sure that is more GREEN than a WOOSH! And for those who live close to the turning blades the strobe effect is horrible. Video does exist of this effect elsewhere. Imagine living in the shadow of those turning blades, forever. GREEN? Visual pollution is not GREEN. And finally, I am told, but have not confirmed that each unit must be started with a gas powered generator.........?????? How is that GREEN? And what about Carbon Credit exchange? The fact that this will generate some clean air credits for Shell to exchange for one of the projects it pollutes elsewhere at rather than simply cleaning up their act where they over pollute according to federal standards. That cannot possibly be called GREEN. Sorry Anonymous you are right. Not in my back yard..... opps..... I mean YARD.
