Compare these two pictures of the scenic Tibbets Point Lighthouse. This lighthouse in Cape Vincent, NY resides at the confluence of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River.
Tibbets Pt. light has been a regional and NY State icon that has proudly represented the incredible beauty and significant history of this town and the 1000 Islands region. In addition, it is a significant symbol of Great Lakes maritime history, having stood in this location for 182 years. Yet in only a few months the rampant and uncontrolled wind energy development of the Wolfe Island Wind Farm on the Canadian side of the river ruined this monument forever.
Careless and greedy wind developers simply disposed of this treasure, by throwing it on the ever expanding garbage pile of similar environmental disasters.
Cape Vincent town officials, many who have blatant conflicts of interests with wind energy developers, have a similar environmental disaster planned for the American side of the river.
