Today’s wind turbines:
Kill millions of birds
Require back up power plants
Are harmful or deadly
Have enormous costs
There are alternative wind turbines choices.
There's a giant leap for offshore wind - a five-turbine project off Block Island, RI. This sets the stage for a new industry in the US. This is the first project of its kind in the US while the coasts of northern Europe, China and Japan has thousands of wind turbines.
What's stopping the US? Asthetics? Narrow-mindedness? Big Business? Listen to find out.

Today on "It's My House" we shall give you a sneak preview of "Civil Rights radio". Civil Rights Radio will give you the bigger picture of Civil Rights. We belive that many people do not know the basics of Civil Rights, however they can quickly learn them in a matter of minutes. Once they grasp the simple basic idea of (If you do not know your rights.....you do not have any), then anyone can empower themselves to use the tactics and strategies that are availble via Civil Rights.
Environmental news and views of Haiti, the Caribbean and South Florida. The show is produced by Ken English, the MediaMojoGuy.
Camille Coley - Florida Atlantic University: The National Climate Assessment (NCA) is an important resource for understanding and communicating climate change science and impacts in the US. It informs the nation about already observed changes, the current status of climate and anticipated trends for the future. The NCA report process integrates scientific information from multiple sources and sectors to highlight key findings and significant gaps in our knowledge.
Cary Shineldecker of Ludington, Michigan will be on the program this weekend to talk about his life among turbines. Cary is Petition supporter #1017. He writes, "I am a resident caught in the middle of a wind development. Not only do these ruin our lives, but they ruin every thing in nature we hold sacred. Wildlife, Scenery, and the Value of Quiet Places for generations to come. Put an end to this madness. Turbines cannot even create enough energy to pay for themselves. Stop development now." Jane Wilson of Wind Concerns Ontario will be on to talk about the winners of the 2nd Annual Golden Pinwheel awards. Kristi Rosenquist and Mary Hartman will be on to update us on New Era Wind's quest to kill bald eagles and other raptors in Minnesota -- U.S. Fish and Wildlife say that fine and dandy Graham Lang and Lyndsey Ward will talk about the brand new national alliance -- Scotland Against Spin http://scotlandagainstspin.org
The topics are wide-ranging today: the letter to the editor, "What Has America Become" (http://frontpage.americandaughter.com/?p=4363), the changing views on the American family, wind turbines in Bonneville County, school district consolidation and charter schools.
Ozzie Zehner is the author of Green Illusions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism which was published last month. We don’t have an energy crisis. We have a consumption crisis. And this book, which takes aim at cherished assumptions regarding energy, offers refreshingly straight talk about what’s wrong with the way we think and talk about the problem. Though we generally believe we can solve environmental problems with more energy—more solar cells, wind turbines, and biofuels—alternative technologies come with their own side effects and limitations. How, for instance, do solar cells cause harm? Why can’t engineers solve wind power’s biggest obstacle? Why won’t contraception solve the problem of overpopulation, lying at the heart of our concerns about energy, and what will? Ozzie Zehner is a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley. His recent publications include public science pieces in Christian Science Monitor, The American Scholar, The Humanist, The Futurist, Women’s Studies Quarterly and The Economist as well as educational resources in Green Technology (Sage, 2011) and Green Culture (Sage, 2011). Zehner’s research and projects over the previous two decades have been covered by CNN, MSNBC, USA Today, Science News Radio, The Washington Post, Business Week and numerous other media outlets. He also serves on the editorial board of Critical Environmentalism. Zehner primarily researches the social, political and economic conditions influencing energy policy priorities and project outcomes. His work also incorporates symbolic roles that energy technologies play within political and environmental movements.
