Oregon Coast Fishermen are rolling up their sleeves to stop the construction of huge offshore windmills

Many electrical energy generating windmills contemplated off the shores of Oregon.

The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners put out a BIG NO! to a federal agency that wants to build huge electric generating windmill farms just off the shores of the Oregon Coast.  Lincoln County Commissioners Kaety Jacobson and Doug Hunt decided to send off a rather straight-forward NO! to a request by the federal government that wants to install hundreds of windmills along the coast. 

Of course the commissioners and a representative said they’ll fight hard to push those windmills farther and farther from shore so as to not interrupt the harvesting of fish which is a mainstay for the local fishing fleets – not to mention their customers.  The fishermen say trolling for seafood is hard enough without coping with hundreds or thousands of windmills, wired to electrical substations up and down the coast.

They contend that the windmill machinery promoters gave little notice to the Oregon Coast communities.  Oregon sea fishermen were taken by complete surprise saying “You don’t put electrical windmills alongside large areas where seafood has been harvested for decades on end.”  “Besides,” they said, ” the federal office that monitors sea fishing didn’t even mention what they were doing as they recently began to survey the Oregon Coast where they’re determined to install many miles of clearly visible windmills – windmills that would dramatically interrupt deep sea fishing.

County Commissioners Kaety Jacobson and Doug Hunt said the federal government moved too far and too fast thinking all they had to do was start building windmills.

The Battle Begins.
