Time to Say Goodbye

Well, after 6 years, it’s time to close down QuixotesLastStand.  I’ve been an environmentalist crusader since my first walkathon to save the whales, before I was even a teenager.  Now, almost 50 years later, it’s time to pass the torch to a younger generation.

With his degree in forestry, Paul has been relentless in his desire to get people to understand the importance and value of keeping and planting MORE trees, to help the environment, rather than cutting them down to put up useless, inefficient and unreliable wind turbines whose destruction to the earth far outweighs any meagre benefit they give.

Paul and I have done what we could to warn of the serious environmental issues surrounding industrial wind turbines and the greedy multinational billion dollar corporations and politicians who get rich off of them.

We, as a whole, can work to help this planet without seniors dying of hypothermia because they can’t pay their electric bill, or by forcing families into energy poverty resulting in some losing their homes.

For now, Paul and I would like to just spend our remaining years, enjoying the fruits of our many years of labour, without the stress of daily combat.

This site will close down in a few weeks.  Thank you to all of our thousands of followers over the years.  We value your support and wish you well in your continued crusade against the tyranny of globalist liberals whose sole aim is to rob us of the freedoms and rights we’ve enjoyed for so long and to deprive our children and grandchildren of the good fortunes and first world basic necessities and conveniences we’ve taken for granted.

Should anyone wish to take over Quixotes, please leave a comment below.  It is a treasure trove of research articles and important items related to the ecological devastation wrought by these monstrous machines.

All the best to everyone,

Laura and Paul

    Congratulations! Your dedication has been admirable. The amount of information you have provided us over the years has no parallel. Thank you Laura and Paul.

      Thanks so much Wayne. Come on out and visit us sometime.

    Sorry to see them go but they do deserve a break.

    Sorry to see you retire from the field of combat and well done for all your efforts. I think more people are now informed about the negative aspects of wind power and the champions of the technology are now seen as the opportunists and dishonest souls that they are.

      Thank you for everything Dougal. Really appreciated all of your support over the years. Good luck with your continued fight. Someday, hopefully, we will be victorious.

    ❤️ Be happy. I’m looking at doing same thing. PCs are no different. Can’t even get Lisa to respond to an email. So sad. Beachers dealing with town equally frustrating. Lose lose is most of these council members are friends so when you oppose some staff action they have to try and give you lip service while you’re getting lip service from staff. Thanks to you and Paul personally for all you’ve done. I really hope someone young and energetic who gets the UN proposition takes the site over. I doubt Karen will but thought I’d give it a go. Have fun!

      Hi, Thanks for all your advice and support from over here in Scotland. It helped us save our lovely farm from a massive Industrial Turbine scheme. The battle lasted 3-years — and one heart attack! — but the conclusion is never give in to the grasping morons. We were rare winners. Scotland is now not worth visiting with the nutty SNP so-called Government plastering almost every horizon with turbines — while sitting on endless supplies of shale gas. Talk about idiots. The turbines don’t produce enough — so they import and burn shale gas by the tanker load from the USA!!!!. Enjoy retirement. You deserve it. Andy S.(See Airreiquhillart windfarm protest)

        Hi Andy. It’s such a sham. Every time I hear a rich elite global warming politician or celebrity lecture us on cutting back on our lifestyle, i.e. trying to keep warm, or just having to travel, while they jet around the world on their private planes, it makes my blood boil. If just ONE of those environmental hypocrites practised a modicum of what they preach, the world would be helped immensely.

        Far easier to tell the ‘little people’ that we’re too greedy and self-centred, than for them to make any effort or suffer any inconvenience to alter their lifestyle.

      To Greg…..Lisa has been a bitter disappointment for a long time. Hope to see you again, some day.

    I’ll always think of you both, and I wish you nothing but the best!!! Shellie

    • Donna Quixote January 4, 2019 at 6:21 pm #

      Thanks Shellie. We’d still love to have you and your family move out this way. Keep in touch with us. You have our email addresses. Stay the course!

    Thanks for all you did, it helped many groups to see it as a world wide scam not just a local problem, with your help we managed to keep the monsters off Anglesey (UK),

    Enjoy your retirement.

    I’ve continued the fight for facts not fiction in the climate arena (*misinformation started the ‘renewables’ ball rolling*)

    • Donna Quixote January 4, 2019 at 6:22 pm #

      Maintain the objective. We haven’t abandoned the fight, just aren’t going to run the site any longer. We need to scale back a bit. All the best!

    Thank you for your contribution over tge last 6 year and we hope that you enjoy your retirement! Happy to receive any material for review and publication on Stop These Things.

    • Donna Quixote January 4, 2019 at 6:23 pm #

      Thanks so much and all the best to you and your battle down under. Some day, hopefully, the need for our types of sites will be a thing of the past. Until then, stay the course!

    I was so happy to have found you a few years ago when you re-posted one of my articles on wind turbines. It was encouraging to find others who shared my concern for our environment and to shed light on the hoax of global warming and the false narrative that wind turbines are the answer to fossil fuels in clean, green energy production. Very sorry to see you shut down your site, but after 50 years of dedication to the cause you deserve to enjoy your family and friends and turn the fight over to other concerned citizens. I wish you well! Laura Rambeau Lee

    • Donna Quixote January 5, 2019 at 5:45 am #

      Thanks Laura. Someone has stepped forward and offered to keep the site up, so that people still have access to the resource material, so we may not be gone completely. We still believe the future for energy is in salt-reactor or thorium nuclear. Hopefully our children and grandchildren will see that clean form of energy come to fruition in their lifetime. All the best to you!

    Thank you so much for the years you have put into revealing the disastrous impact industrial wind turbines have on humans and animals. We will miss you!

      Thanks Deb! We’ve made many many friends from all over the world whose lives were literally destroyed by these giant electrical machines placed far too close to their homes and their families. It’s been a heartbreaking eye-opener for us. All the best to you!

    Dear Donna and Paul, Your website helped me and my wife on several occasions. It was hard for us. We abandoned our home in Vermilion County Illinois because of InvEnergy’s wind turbines there. We were certainly ridiculed and called many names and accused of many things (untrue). It was tough, but your posts and other organizations similar to yours was a reminder that we were: 1.) not alone 2.) not crazy 3.) not sick or overly-sensitive/weak. Our home abandonment was almost exactly 5 years ago (Christmas 2013). Since then, our ruined house has become a tool to help others avoid the same disaster. We refuse to let it become “wasted”, as we still work to get the most good out of it even though we finally sold it in September 2016. I am happy that you found someone who can step into your shoes. Please show them our response to your “retirement” so that it can encourage them to keep it going strong so it may help others like us. Best regards, Ted and Jessica Hartke

    • Donna Quixote January 17, 2019 at 1:33 am #

      Hi Ted and Jessica. It’s been heartbreaking at times to hear how these ruthless politicians and corporations have put $$$$$ ahead of peoples lives and health. So sorry that it happened to you as well. All of our best wishes for you and your family in the future.

  18. Janna Swanson January 8, 2019 at 9:25 am #

    I am sorry to see any wind opposition site close down but I do certainly understand how overwhelming it all can be. I hope one day to step back and let others take the lead in this fight but for now I am still one on the “new” ones that have picked up the torch people like you lit back when I was absolutely clueless. So I thank you for your service. I run the Coalition for Rural Property Rights in NW Iowa. Iowa has won next to nothing in this fight so if you have anything to pass on that would be of help we’d appreciate it!

    • Donna Quixote January 17, 2019 at 1:35 am #

      Hi Jenna. All I can say is research as much as possible (hopefully the info on this site will help) and connect with others fighting this corporate dragon. There is strength in unity and if nothing else, you meet some amazingly wonderful people who will change your life. Good luck to you.
