•Credible studies (not bought and paid for by the Turbines developers) indicate significant risk. Wind turbines in Lake Erie add flight risk to those using Burke Lakefront Airport. •Save our Sound from Cape Cod Massachusetts found the FAA had approved Wind Turbines for their waters against the FAA’s own regulations.
They were able to get a judge to rule in their favor. We have an air ambulance company at Burke that requires emergency clearances.
•Wind Turbine turbulence will add added safety measures when bringing patients in. This is a good business and also brings our world class area hospitals a lot business.Project Status Icebreaker has met the technical requirements of the Ohio Power Siting Board,so the OPSB Staff has recommended that the OPSB Board grant approval to the project.The OPSB Board will vote to approve or decline issuing a construction certificate most likely in July of 2019. Conclusions After doing extensive research, the Lake Erie Foundation has found overwhelming scientific and practical evidence that the environmental and economic costs of Icebreaker far outweigh the few illusory benefits claimed by the developer.Objective, fact-based analys is in the form of an Environmental Impact Statement should be required for the following reasons:
•First, this project is precedent setting. The developer has stated that Icebreaker is a demonstration project to prove the feasibility of building an additional 1,400 to 1,500 wind turbines in Lake Erie by the year 2030.
•Second, Lake Erie is the source of drinking water to 11 million people and there is much uncertainty about the environmental impacts of this project on the Lake Erie’s already fragile ecosystem.
•Third, Lake Erie is a critical migration route for millions of birds, including endangered and threatened species. Environmentalist’s guidelines call for siting wind turbines onshore, at least five miles away from the open waters of any of the Great Lakes. The State has an obligation through the Public Trust Doctrine, to protect Lake Erie for the benefit of Ohio’s citizens, not the foreign corporation and special interests who will profit from its completion. As such, the State of Ohio must show that they’ve based their decisions, decisions affecting the future of Lake Erie, on the proper due diligence. We urge the State of Ohio to stipulate the completion of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) as a condition of approving this project.
The scrutiny of an EIS will demonstrate that Governor DeWine has taken the prudent and appropriate steps to protect Lake Erie for Ohio’s citizens



This, would be a disaster!
