Tur­bines: O.C. night­mare

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Pa­tri­cia Owens, Tow­son

Your Mon­day morn­ing edi­to­rial head­line was, “Not again, Dr. Har­ris” (June 11) to which I want to shout: “Yes, again, Dr. Har­ris!” It is hor­ri­fy­ing to think that wind tur­bines “with red lights atop each tower… will be vis­i­ble from the beaches of Ocean City and As­sateague.” Why on earth should we pre­fer sub­si­diz­ing the well-to-do beach­front home­own­ers and de­vel­op­ers while per­ma­nently de­stroy­ing the beau­ti­ful, nat­u­ral and peace­ful view that we all trea­sure, es­pe­cially at night?

Fall­ing prop­erty val­ues and dam­aged tourism might be a bless­ing for those of us who used to love the old Ocean City, and can’t be­lieve that there aren’t bet­ter ways to com­bat the dam­age caused by burn­ing fos­sil fu­els.

And have you ex­plored the fi­nan­cial in­ter­ests and po­lit­i­cal connections of the wind tur­bine in­dus­try in Mary­land?
