One of the good AWED people is Mike Bond, whose fifth novel has just been published. It’s a strong condemnation of the wind industry. Called SAVING PARADISE, it’s an “eco-thriller” based on the experiences of an ex-Special Forces vet who gets tied up in the murder of a journalist by a wind energy company.

He says the reason he wrote the book was to educate people about the wind scam. All royalties and net proceeds are going to anti-wind funding. He has worked out a process with his publisher that if an anti-wind group wants to offer the book to its members, we can provide it at cost, and the group makes about $8 per book. Contact Mike at

Our proposed national energy slogan is still “All of the Sensible” (in contrast to the absurd “All of the Above”). Please pass it on. US citizens should make sure to get up-to-speed with what is on our PTCFacts.Info pages, as this is still a political issue.


Please pass this information on to other open-minded, science-oriented people.

Thank you for your support.
