When it comes to proposals for wind turbine projects, the debates over whether or not they should be approved have raged in Niagara, Ontario and Western New York, and many other regions of Canada and the United States.

Are they a cost-effective alternative to fossil fuels? Are they a blight on the landscape and drag on property values for people living by? And last but not least, do they pose a health risk for people living near them?

Whether or not people should say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to wind turbines in or near their communities is the focus of a presentation and discussion being hosted in Buffalo, New York this coming Monday, March 7th, 2016 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. by the Sierra Club’s Buffalo area Climate & Clean Energy Writers Group.

The event will take place at the Unitarian Church located on 695 Elmwood Avenue at the intersection of Ferry Street in Buffalo. The meeting will be held on the church’s 2nd floor in its Alliance Room.

The Writers Group meets monthly to hear a short presentation on a relevant topic, discuss energy related news, letters and articles, and encourage each other to write for publication on topics of interest. All are welcome to attend.

Here is a poster prepared for the March 7th event.sierra club
