    Just today, Monday the 25th, the Amherst Island radio station, CJAI, interviewed Scott Weidensaul, of Project Snowstorm. It will be available as a podcast hopefully within a couple of days. It is all about the Snowy Owls currently on AI. You really ought to take the time to listen to it, and visit the PS web site blog. Then imagine one of these magnificent birds flying for a month or more amid the wind turbines and the likely result.

      How can this number of IWTs be installed on Amherst Island not cause just plain old structural vibrations?
      Residents should have before any IWTs are installed:
      Sound measurements
      Stray voltage measurements
      Structural vibration measurements
      People are going to have to protect themselves because the government won’t.
