National Wind Watch: Organizing the Grassroots Against Industrial Wind (Will D.C. environmentalists get back to their roots?)

There is lots going on outside of Washington, D.C. when it comes to the environment, and perhaps no issue is bigger than the grassroot revolt against industrial wind parks. Such is not a ploy or plot by Big Oil or Big Coal or big anything. It is a natural reaction by those under a lifestyle assault by a mega-instrusive energy source that is about government dependence, political capitalism, and false environmental dogma–not the common good and environmental progress.

Future historians will no doubt wonder how Big Environmentalism got so far off track to support industrial windpower. A machine in every pristine–is this what environmental elitism at its worst?

“Let’s take back our environment from Big Environmentalism” could be the rallying cry of this new environmental movement. Are such groups as the Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council, and (you fill in the blank)  listening?

National Wind Watch

The co-founder and head of National Wind Watch (NWW) is Eric Rosenbloom, who was one of several dozen activists from ten states attending a conference in 2005 from which National Wind Watch was formed. A Vermont resident, Rosenbloom has been NWW’s president since 2006.
