Gone with the Wind!
The value in your home and property

On this site you will be able to easily access worldwide information about property loss, income stream losses, homes abandoned, and related economic losses due to proximity to industrial wind turbines. It is clear that the phenomenon of property loss is widespread, real, and verified by many experts. The tragedy is compounded by lives shattered by the loss of their principal home/residence/farm/land, often a complete loss, as a sale is not even possible.
