Rabble.ca - A mighty controversy: Are windfarm opponents getting their facts straight?

While no one can be blamed for scepticism about proponent-funded research, cherry-picked statistics and misrepresentative facts from anti-wind energy groups lead to further confusion, not clarity. Erickson wants a public meeting in which local citizens can invite the experts of their choice, so "people could ask questions of somebody who doesn't have a conflict of interest." That's one way to establish trust.

Jane Story of the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association offers another: neighbours should share the costs and benefits by building their own renewable energy cooperatives. "If you want to deal with the problems of where they're located," she says, "own it!"
