Wind Watch web site and Rosenbloom want your money for our work

… the shady Eric Rosenbloom …

"Eyes black as coal and when he lifts his face every ear in the place is on him. Starting soft and slow like a small earthquake; And when he lets go, half the valley shakes." …

… unethical …

… clean up its act …

… the ethically bankrupt Rosenbloom is an equal opportunity abuser …

… in January he went back to the dark side. …

… Rosenbloom's request that you send HIM money …

… unethical scoundrels such as Eric Rosenbloom …


So wrote Bob Gorman, managing editor, at the Watertown Daily Times (New York) in an obviously libelous, misinformed, and vaguely antisemitic rant last month.

Despite complete accommodation of Gorman's concerns by National Wind Watch, he flew off the handle anyway, taking his professional and perhaps personal frustrations out on "the shady Eric Rosenbloom", whose "crime" seems to have been simply to actually engage with Gorman rather than cower obsequiously.

(It should also be noted that, as clearly stated on its "About" page, National Wind Watch "is a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation registered in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts" and "All of the work for NWW is by unpaid volunteers", and on the "Donate" page, "Every dollar goes directly to providing the information that campaigners around the world rely on".)
