Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection State Agency Designed To Protect You Is Instead Financing Wind Turbine Projects
Maine Set To follow political agenda?
MassDEP & Governor Charlie Baker Ignore Wind Turbine Noise Infra Sound -Health & Property Rights
Massachusetts ignored noise and shadow flicker from land based wind turbines resulting in ten years of health and property takings in twenty one Massachusetts communities.
Now the same politicians are going forward placing submarine cables, massive Electric Service Platforms and ocean wind turbines that generate heat, electromagnetic fields and frequencies in the ocean and on top of that not allowing the fishing industry enough space to make a living.
A regulatory capture is a form of government failure which occurs when a regulatory agency, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, created to act in the public interest, instead advances the commercial or political concerns of special interest groups that dominate the industry or sector it is charged with regulating.
In response to health concerns from residents living in proximity to wind turbines in twenty-one communities, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and Massachusetts Department of Public Health convened an independent expert science panel to conduct a literature review and to prepare a report on any documented or potential health impacts or risks that may be associated with exposure to wind turbines.
Our Governor at the time, Deval Patrick, ordered this report as a tool to promote his ambitious wind agenda in the face of direct evidence of harm from one of the first of Massachusetts' wind experiments which were proving troublesome – that being Falmouth, Massachusetts with a second wind turbine financed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.
MassDEP financed the second Falmouth turbine called Falmouth Wind II with a contract called a PRA, Project Regulatory Agreement, that disregarded health and safety for lower payments on a loan for energy production.
In spite of Massachusetts' residents who were reporting various health impacts from wind turbines due to both the invasive and excessive noise levels along with strobing impacts that are clearly, due to their intensity level, nothing short of an environmental pollutant – the so-called "experts" were not allowed to perform any study of, or hold any discussions with, those who were experiencing degraded living conditions.
Yes, our very own typically protective Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection was co-opted at its highest levels by politicians with an agenda.
MassDEP allowed the wind turbine industry to take the health and property rights of twenty-one Massachusetts communities.
