Commercial Wind Turbines Vulnerable To Cyber Warfare

Modern day commercial megawatt wind turbines are operated by SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition).

Scada is a control system that uses computers and local area network data communications which also includes cell phones and laptops.

Massachusetts officials have put the wind turbine agenda ahead of health, security and property rights.

There is no legislation that regulates communications between wind turbine locations. As the number of turbines increases, there are concerns about SCADA systems being vulnerable to cyber warfare or cyber terrorist attacks.

What if an individual in a foreign country was able to access every wind turbine and shut them down at the same time?

As proof of the ignorance, Massachusetts has a commercial wind turbine agenda that disregards the health and property rights of thousands of citizens and now data access to the turbines.

The further proof shows the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection responsible for protecting the public through state noise regulations helped write "Project Regulatory Agreements " which provided low-cost loans for commercial wind turbines they knew were too loud. The case in point was the Falmouth Wind II turbine generating 110 decibels of noise.

The Falmouth wind turbine, in addition, received ARRA, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funds through the Massachusetts state revolving funds overseen by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.

Politicians are ignoring the first United States wind turbine noise complaints received from a dozen families within a two-mile radius of a turbine experiment in Boone, North Carolina during September of 1979. The US Department of Energy and NASA confirmed infrasound from the site in a report in 1987.

The Massachusetts legislature and governor of Massachusetts continue to put the public at risk ignoring wind turbine health concerns, cybersecurity, and private property rights.

What about Maine? What about the rest of the country?  Who is watching the store?

ooo, hadn't thought about the cybersecurity angle. That's pretty significant concern. Wonder what kind of protection is typically in place for these remote controlled industrial wind facilities? Hmmm. I think I see a new concern for regulators and legislators....

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
