Industrial Wind Action Group

The Industrial Wind Action Group proclaims that it is "dedicated to providing information on industrial wind energy to enable communities and government officials to make informed decisions."

While the homepage of its website implies it is neutral on whether wind power is a good idea or not, elsewhere on its website it is more explicit that it opposes windpower. The group was formed, it states, "to counteract the misleading information promulgated by the wind energy industry and various environmental groups. Support for this effort comes from a large and diversified group of environmentalists, energy experts, and ordinary citizens." [1] However, no specific individuals or organizations are listed anywhere on the website.

The website was registered on May 31, 2006 by the Parkerhill Technology Group LLC of 286 Parker Hill Road, Lyman, New Hampshire. [2] Parkerhill Technology Group are also listed as the address for contributions to be sent to. [3] The group provides no office address, contact names or contact numbers on its website, only a page to sent an email to the group. [4]

Parkerhill Technology Group was founded by Jonathan S. Linowes, a self-proclaimed Tea Party activist and climate change denier.[5]

According to the Wisconsin Gazette, the group "routinely quotes as 'experts' affiliates of various front groups supported by Koch Industries, Charles Koch and the Koch family."[6]
