James Lovelock, founder of Gaia and Green movement, decries industrial wind turbines

To all the environmentalist on Vinalhaven and North Haven who embrace the idea that the public good is served by industrial wind turbines; please read the following Dec. 2012 communication from James Lovelock, founder of the Gaia movement:

James-Lovelock-Letter

“I am an environmentalist and founder member of the Greens but I bow my head in shame at the thought that our original good intentions should have been so misunderstood and misapplied. We never intended a fundamentalist Green movement that rejected all energy sources other than renewable, nor did we expect the Greens to cast aside our priceless ecological heritage because of their failure to understand that the needs of the Earth are not separable from human needs. We need take care that the spinning windmills do not become like the statues on Easter Island, monuments of a failed civilisation.”

Well, those monuments are on North Haven Road.
