♦ Description : “Will the big plan for the development of wind energy in France turn to sinking? Everything seems to announce it. Increasingly strong and justified doubts surround this energy choice, which essentially responds to political considerations. In all regions of France there is growing opposition from residents against wind turbines that threaten their environment and health, but also the French in general, revolted by the destruction of their landscapes and the waste of public money. Trumpily adorned with all the ecological virtues, the development in France of wind turbines, destructive heritage and our tourism potential, does not obey any climate or economic logic. It gives rise to often opaque financial arrangements that benefit only a small number of insiders, while it is the whole of the French who, by their taxes and taxes collected on electricity bills, support the the insane cost of this irresponsible policy. It is high time to give up this ecological utopia, which does not correspond to France’s landscape specificities or its energy model, and which collectively leads us to an unprecedented cultural, environmental, health and financial disaster.”

Pierre Dumont – entered the Beaux Arts in Rouen in 1936. In 1941, he tried his luck in Paris in car advertising. In 1946, he was recruited at the Revue Technique Automobile (RTA) as head of the drawing office.
