By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

Updated with the slides used in the presentation…

Livingston County, Illinois recently held a hearing on the Pleasant Ridge Wind Farm application from Invenergy.

Ted Hartke presented testimony and answered questions under oath with Invenergy’s attorney Mike Blazier attempting to discredit him and attempting to limit his remarks to questions.

If you are interested in the detrimental impacts of wind turbines / wind farms built too close to homes, this is a must watch video – you will not be disappointed.

The below video is long, 3 hours and 6 minutes…but it is worth watching. It begins with Ted’s presentation, then at around the 1:13:00 mark is where Ted is questioned for almost an hour by Blazier, representing Invenergy. At the 2:07:20 mark is where Ted verifies that Bill Donahue, Assistant State’s Attorney for Vermilion County, has lied on behalf of the Vermilion County Board on several occasions on several things.
