are remarkably fortunate to be alive and conscious on this planet
located at the edge of a medium-sized spiral galaxy. We have no idea if
the conditions essential for the development of intelligent life exist
on any of the billions of other planets probably located in the Milky
Way. Endangering Earth's atmosphere by continuing to over- use
fossil fuels should not be an option. By exploiting wind power,
and its latest version - off-shore, over fresh water - Cleveland can
choose a high-profile way of being part of the solution."

envisioned wind project in Lake Erie off of downtown Cleveland can
break down the barriers to subsequent development of the abundant wind
resources in the Great Lakes, while becoming an icon for the 21st
Century for our area."

I applaud Windustrious for visualizing Cleveland's future as one that includes addressing global climate change through the development of renewable energy sources. Exploring a new industry that could be ecologically responsible, economically vital, and reputation enhancing is a forward-thinking strategy for our region. The positive impact of such an initiative would be felt far beyond our Cleveland community.

"Smiling sunflowers twirl / As they are tickled / by the wind.
Wading Ferris Wheel / generating / joule-filled currents.
Cleveland, / Wise-up and Rise-up / On the winds of change.
Self-luminous kiss / Warmly caresses whirligig / Breezing ceaselessly"

"I believe that we need bold and creative civic leaders to take risks that can begin to alter the way our town sees itself changing our self-perception from the inside out. The sight of environment-friendly windmills standing tall offshore of our city's lakefront could be a powerful image exported all over the world which says: Cleveland is an innovative city that is ahead of the zeitgeist."
Danny George, Ph.D.candidate in Medical Anthropology at Oxford University
"Cleveland has this wonderful opportunity to demonstrate to the world its growing leadership in green technology and wind power. We need to work quickly and secure our place, not only as thought leaders but as pioneers."

We support Wind Power development on Lake Erie.
Wind as a major resource is inevitable; It is time to show the world
that Cleveland is a major player, once again, in providing energy leadership.

Cleveland's NASA Glenn Research Center is a pioneer in wind power research and development.
It's time for the city of Cleveland to benefit from the research
that helped establish wind power throughout the world.

support the concept of creating a unique, major energy source for the
northern Ohio region and, perhaps, beyond through the development of a
wind farm in Lake Erie. In addition to being a sensible idea for
harnessing wind power for human use, it offers the potential for
revitalizing our region's economy."

power has the potential to become a routine source of energy for
Northern Ohio and the Great Lakes region. By supporting this project,
Cleveland will take a lead role in shaping and implementing energy
strategies of the future. Cleveland's leadership role in clean energy
generation, storage, distribution and use will generate significant
business opportunities, provide affordable clean energy and make Ohio a
