Green Racine

Welcome to Green Racine!

Please check the page out and visit the links. I love Nuke and Wind Power. Still think we should drill here and drill now!
A wide mix here from Green power to why we need to end the Embargo on Cuba.
I see myself as being GREEN but far from an Al Gore Green Nazi.
Hope this page provokes thought if nothing else

Falmouth MA In the News

Now Racine WI is on the lake and we have a browns field that would be great to place a good three turbines. Will we? I think not very poor thinking from the City Leadership

Mass. Town Installs Turbine

by NAW Staff on Monday 23 November 2009

The Town of Falmouth, Mass., has installed a single Vestas 1.65 MW wind turbine on an 80-meter tower at its wastewater treatment facility. According to the Falmouth Energy Committee, the project is the first in the state owned by a municipality (but not a municipal utility).

The turbine will provide about 33% of the municipal electrical load, and a second 1.5 MW turbine is scheduled to be installed in 2010, which will help the town generate more than half of its own electricity from wind.

A general obligation bond has been issued and the project revenue will cover the debt and operating costs.

In 2002, Falmouth joined the ICLEI’s Cities for Climate Protection program and committed to reducing its dependence on fossil fuel and associated greenhouse gas emissions by 10% by 2010.

Isn't that nice. Much of Cape Cod which has been protected for 50 years is going to get 400 foot industrial tower up and down its length. There are plans for almost every town. The tallest hill on the Cape is 306 feet. Talk about visual and noise pollution. Well you greenies wanted it. Instead of responsibly putting these far from people, you are making them suffer for your dream. Nice! Investigate how happy the dream of wind in Vinalhaven Maine is turning out.
Or up in Canada where people are distraught. There are people abandoning their house...and no I am not joking! And former turbine lovers are now haters. We need responsible wind power!
