What you won't see in the 2012 Thousand Islands & St. Lawrence Seaway travel Guide.

You will see lots of pictures in the 2012 edition of the Thousand Island and St. Lawrence Seaway International Travel Guild that you can visit online at this link.  

A view of the ferry leaving Cape Vincent. A view
of the ferry arriving Cape Vincent would show
Wolfe Island Turbines in the background.
And they are beautiful pictures. Because The Thousand Islands is a beautiful place.

But, like all communities, when promoting their tourism resources, they hide any embarrassing features. And, what you don't see in the 2012 guide is the Wolfe Island Turbines that shock every sailer when entering the mouth of the St. Lawrence from Lake Ontario. 

An embarrassing reality that many like to hide.

Born in most us are senses to appreciate beauty and we know it when we see, hear, touch, and smell the roses that surround us.

Take a minute and ask yourself to think of the 5 most Beautiful extended areas in the world that you have experienced.

For me the extended areas that come to mind are the Thousand Islands Area, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite and areas of the Hudson River.

My question to you is why would anyone seriously consider constructing an Industrial Wind Turbine in the view shed of these areas.

Knowing in our Hearts is different than just knowing in our Heads.

2:09 Some people haven't seen the places that you mention. They don't have the educated perspective that you have. If they happen to be on the Town Board and have signed a contract with the wind salesman they may have only the money perspective to go by. Unaware that they live near (as you say and I agree) "one of the most beautiful extended areas in the world" they cannot get it through there heads or they simply don't want to know that there are many disadvantages to this type of development. The phrase "Lack of exposure" generally helps to understand this mind set.

So 2:09 you still want your dam money, well think of all the places where to spend it, but there's only one thing wrong, there's no towers now and won't be any in the future. Case closed and the tears will begin to flow soon. You lost the election, you lost your seats, you lost the battle. Now count you pennies because you will lose the money to. HO Hum.
