Activist who filmed removal of bald eagle nest by wind developer faces multi-million lawsuit
By Miriam Raftery and Sholeh Sisson
June 5, 2013 (Ontario, Canada) -- Esther Wrightman, the Canadian activist who documented Nextera Energy's removal of a bald eagle nest to make way for wind turbines, now faces a multi-million dollar lawsuit by the multi-national corporation. Why? Because she created a parody version of the company's logo which read "NexTerror" and "NextError."
The company makes the bizarre claim that Wrightman's logo on a wind resistance blog could somehow confuse its corporate customers. But supporters of Wrightman contend the suit's real motivation is to silence a strong voice of dissent. Nextera also pressured Wordpress to remove the logos, but Wordpress has put the logos back up, finding that no law was broken.

The Sun News report includes video documenting reasons why citizens might feel terrorized by wind turbine companies (not the other way around). The report includes video of the multi-ton blade that recently fell off a wind turbine in Ocotillo locally.
It also showed a condor striking a turbine blade and tumbling to the ground and documented extensive health complaints by residents living near turbines in Canada, including many symptoms documented by physicians.
