Regulatory Capture is a form of government failure that occurs when a regulatory agency, 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.

Falmouth Health Department requests State assessment of turbine health impacts :

Letter 

Ms. Suzanne Condon
Associate Commissioner
Massachusetts Department of Public Health
250 Washington Street, 7th Floor
Boston, MA 02108

Dear Ms. Condon,

The Falmouth Board of Health requests that Mass DPH immediately initiate a health assessment of the impacts of the operation of wind turbines in Falmouth. This appeal is compelled by two years of consistent and persistent complaints of health impacts during turbine
operation.
We realize that this is an atypical health assessment study. The suspected agent of harm is not a food borne, waterborne, or airborne contaminant. Yet, the Wind Turbine Health Impact Study recently completed by the State suggests certain elements of wind turbine operation propagate to health impacts potentially as harmful as those caused by organic agents.
To assist Mass DPH in the identification of health effects and potential study subjects, the Falmouth Board of Health held a hearing on May 24th, 2012, at which we accepted further testimony from those individuals in our community who believe they are experiencing negative health impacts from the operation of three turbines in Falmouth. We have attached a summary, received testimony, and a map of respondents. We are appealing to the Mass DPH to conduct this study due to its ability to collect and analyze confidential health information.
Due to the increasing intensity of the reported health impacts, the Board is considering emergency actions. To determine the appropriateness of such actions, the Board requests immediate guidance on interim measures to protect the health of affected individuals while the complete health assessment is being conducted.
We look to your Department, as that which holds the highest duty to protect the health of the citizens of the Commonwealth, to assist us in this matter. Accordingly, we request a meeting at the earliest possible time with you or your staff. We are certain that once you have read the attached testimony that we received, you will appreciate the urgency and need for such a meeting. That meeting can be coordinated through our Health Agent, David Carignan.

If your neighborhood is targeted for industrial scale wind turbine development, you owe it to yourself to watch this video. Shame on Falmouth and Massachusetts for allowing this to go on for over 2 years. Even now the DEP and DPH, much like the chairperson of this meeting, is trying to spin the problems with these turbines as unique. This is completely ridiculous as similar health effects are reported worldwide whenever these monstrosities are put too close to people.

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.
