I’m not devaluing what happened back in history. I’m using this to describe the true dimensions of what is about to happen to our rural heritage. This is not hyperbole!

Klimaretter has a useless piece here where the author calls the Fukushima event the spark that is setting off the Green Industrial Revolution, and can hardly contain his glee. That may be true in some countries, at least for now.
But what the author does not mention is that many true greens are getting awfully uneasy about the current wide-scale massacre and mechanisation of the the world’s most beautiful mountain ridges, coastal areas and rural landscapes. And unless this madness is stopped, you aint seen nothing yet.
Groups like Klimaretter, irreversibly blinded by dogmatism and anti-carbon fanaticism, hacks of the green industry, anti-carbon religion and Big Green Finance, are unwittingly pushing for the mass desecration of natural landscape and rural beauty. Yes – let’s ruin the surface of the planet because we think it’ll tame and preserve the behaviour of the atmosphere.
True greens and skeptics may not agree on a lot of things, but we can all agree that the industrialisation of our countryside is a mortal sin against our natural heritage.
This is big industry, aided and abetted by the government, making a ton of money at the expense of little guys.
My hope is that the true greens will some day SOON realise that all this hype about CO2 causing climate change is wildy exaggerated by special interests (GE, Big Gas, banks and carbon traders, reinsurers, etc.) and that all this ugly mechanisation is for literally nothing.
My plea to greens is that they reconsider all this – and join up with the budding resistance to this madness – to fight for the preservation of our landscape. Let’s use the legal system to choke these vandalising bastards.
I was born and raised in northern Vermont in some of the most beautíful countryside you can imagine. Today, when I go back and visit, I get so depressed. The Green Mountains are now getting transformed into the Machine Mountains. Mountain tops are being cleared of forests, flattened, and scarred by service roads.
Vermont’s beauty in many of its most treasured rural areas is now gone forever -at least in my case. I will never again see these areas in their original natural beauty- not in my lifetime. Worse – far more of this is on the way. Local residents and their rights have no chance against the might of the industry. They are being steamrolled.
It’s heart-breaking enough to go back to my childhood farm my father owned and to find that it’s been parceled up and homes have been built on it. But it is far more depressing to see that all around the mountain ridges we once marveled have since been industrialised.
Is this what we really want? Is this how we protect the atmosphere and conserve its behaviour? We are living in a nightmare.
This is only the very beginning – multiply all of this by 100, or even 1000. To fulfil the dreams of the wind energy industry and the financiers behind the carbon credit scheme, MANY MANY MORE are going to be put up. EVERYWHERE.
Thankfully the resistance to this madness has already begun. And so I am pleading for open minded true greens, like myself, to take a look at grassroots groups that are resisting this massive industrial encroachment into our countryside treasures. See here for example. http://current.com/1cvfm4c, and join up with them.
Above are photos of the crimes they have committed against a hilltops not far from my childhood farm. The days of seeing this natural landscape are gone – forever. Some day wiser people are going to say, “My God! what kind of madness and dogmatism could have possibly driven this?” I am sure they will. But in the meantime the price is going to be really high and the scars will take a long time to heal.
I bought some property 5 years ago and here are some of the views in the area.
I wonder how long it’ll be before that gets industrially vandalised. Worse, this is Vermont, where already 95% of its electricity comes from either hydro or Vermont Yankee nuclear power – i.e. practically carbon-free! So all the wind parks are just monuments of stupidity.
There is one exception in Vermont – in rich Chittenden county, where all the fat-cats live , many of whom are devout “environmentalists”. So much so that no windmills will be installed on the mountain ridges that they view from their mansions on Spear Street in Burlington. Here’s a view from Charlotte. As long as the fat cat environmentalists are living there, don’t expect to see windmills in their backyards. They belong elsewhere.
There are thousands of websites and photos that document the ravaging of the earth’s natural rural beauty. Remember, this is just the beginning of what these bastards intend to do. Again – “caused by arrogance, by dogma, by ignorance” (Jacob Bronowski).
So I strongly urge you all to seek out rural preservationist groups who are fighting to preserve rural beauty and to join their cause. There are other ways of producing energy that are far less destructive.
