Falmouth Massachusetts 5 Doctors Put Wind Turbine Finances Above Health For Political Agenda

Falmouth Wind Turbine Medical Malpractice ?

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is injured by a medical professional while undergoing treatment. Massachusetts malpractice law explains what constitutes a legitimate medical malpractice claim in the state.

Five Falmouth doctors have diagnosed the residents living around the wind turbines as NIMBY not in my back yard and suffering psychogenic nocebo effects from the wind turbines.

On March 19, 2013

Five Falmouth doctors signed a letter to the Falmouth Board of Health

The main part of the letter says the wind  turbines, "provides revenue for the Town." The 5 doctors claim to be financial experts in commercial wind turbine projects ?

The doctors claim they have NO expertise in wind energy acoustic noise expertise yet wrote a letter on wind turbine noise and the effects on human health.

The doctors claim the decibel level are modest. The doctors on March 19, 2013 had no idea the town was hiding a 110 decibel noise warning from Vestas wind turbine company and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center subsequently admitted in a memo in April of 2013 they had made major mistakes in the original acoustic noise studies prior to the installations.

The Town of Falmouth and MassCEC appear to have done a little surgery on the doctors stabbing them in the back after the doctors wrote the letter in March of 2013

The five Falmouth doctors have not retracted their May 19, 2013 letter to the Falmouth Board Health despite letters, memos, maps and documents made public since they wrote their evaluations of the residents around the wind turbines

The hidden August 2010 Vestas 110 decibel to the Town of Falmouth and the MassCEC admission of acoustic noise mistakes brings up serious questions about the doctors as a group and their decades of experience in medicine and health and their failure to retract the letter from the Falmouth Board of Health.

The so called medical professionals also branded the neighbors of the wind turbines in Falmouth as NIMBY - ( Not In My Back Yard )

None of the five doctors ever examined any one of the up to 200 residential home owners around the wind turbines.

An important step in becoming a doctor, medical students must take the Hippocratic Oath. And one of the promises within that oath is “first, do no harm”

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection found the turbines break state noise regulations and the Massachusetts courts have found the turbines cause substantial harm

The Falmouth Board of Health as a result of the letter is ignoring thousands of written certified noise complaints over the wind turbines.

It's time to retract the letter


The Falmouth Five Doctors Letter :

Dr. Gail Harkness,
Chairperson Falmouth Board of Health
59 Town Hall Square Falmouth, MA 02540

Re: Health effects of wind turbines in Falmouth

Dear Dr. Harkness,

As physicians and residents of Falmouth, we are contacting you regarding the allegations of health impacts from wind turbines. While we do not claim to have expertise in wind energy or acoustics, as a group we have decades of experience in medicine and health.

Given Cape Cod's formidable wind resource, the large wind turbines located in Falmouth can generate substantial amounts of energy. This not only provides revenue for the Town, but also reduces air pollution and climate change. The proven risks of climate change are all too clear - especially for Coastal Communities.

We have listened to the wind turbines and find there is little to hear. The measured decibel levels are modest. We are skeptical that any actual health hazard is created by their operation. Credible public health research indicates that psychogenic nocebo effects may be largely responsible for the controversy, as well as NIMBYism.

Our Society needs to transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources. We urge you to not support curtailment or removal of wind turbines, which would be a regressive step, not a sensible use of taxpayer dollars, and unsubstantiated by a medical or Scientific basis,


Nathaniel Clark, MD Jame S Liljestrand, MD Robert Reece, MD

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


(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/
