Are You Ready for 3,000 More Wind Turbines in Michigan?

As reported in the Capitol Confidential, "Michigan's open spaces could be dotted with turbines nearly 500 feet tall — the same height as the 40-story Guardian Building in downtown Detroit — if voters pass Proposal 3 in November.

"The proposal, which would mandate that 25 percent of Michigan's energy come from renewable sources such as wind by 2025, would require a huge increase in the number of turbines across the state. Read the full story here.

Proposal 3 needs to be defeated. If it is not, you will not only see 3,000-4,000 new wind turbines in Michigan, (with blades that are 100 yards long) but you will also see huge increases in your utility bills. It will be just one more reason for manufacturers and job providers NOT to come to Michigan.
