Gazette’s position on wind energy refreshing

Dear Editor,

 What a refreshing change to read your editorial (Green and Clean) in the January 10, 2024 Picton Gazette.  In the past, local newspapers including the Picton Gazette were very much against renewable energy projects in the County and this in part led to the confidence the Conservative government felt in cancelling the 750 renewable energy projects. I almost feel a sense of shame that we in the County could not collectively do our part to host nine wind turbines. I often wonder if the folks who vehemently opposed the wind farms are concerned about the effects of climate change now considering we just lived through the hottest year on record.

As a member of the County Sustainability Group I would like to draw your attention to a free on-line course from Western University called “Connecting for Climate Change Action”.  I have signed up for it because I want to feel some hope for what one can do in the face of a dire future if we don’t change our ways.
