The Friends of Falmouth Wind are a secret group of local people whose membership includes politicians,doctors and news media editors.
Friends of Falmouth Wind have taken health, property rights and massive frivolous litigation to hide a political fiasco.
These individuals followed the Massachusetts Democratic Party agenda on climate change that requires fighting what they determined was a real war right here in Massachusetts. That war on fossil fuels calls for taking the health and property rights of citizens for the agenda.
The group has taken on a cult status. History will look back at them as an incredibly dangerous secret society willing to trade their neighbors health and homes to achieve a state wind turbine agenda of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy.
Friends of Falmouth Wind despite the Massachusetts Superior Court shut down of the turbines advocates for the operation of the turbines 24/7.
The group over a period of years has omitted or hidden emails, letters, memos, maps and documents that showed the turbines should never have been installed. There is so much information that it actually makes a good case of assault and battery on the up to 200 residential home owners around the wind turbines.
Five Falmouth doctors wrote a letter stating they had no experience in acoustic wind turbine noise and there was little to hear. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection found the turbines are breaking state noise guidelines.
The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center admitted mistakes in acoustic noise done before the installations of the turbines and the town released a letter the turbines generate 110 decibels of noise equal to a hard rock band playing 24/7.
My advice to anyone in Falmouth be careful if your under the care of one of those doctors ! They are hard of hearing and don't listen.
If you ask any local news media editors on Cape Cod about the wind turbines the response will be: "mistakes were made." You'll never read an editorial telling you what those mistakes were. The mistakes were installing the wind turbines in the first place. Aka editors with no Cojones.
The Falmouth Energy Committee Chairman wrote a letter to the state begging them not to allow taking down the turbines. The chair person signed the letter as the chair of the Energy Committee and member of Friends of Falmouth Wind and then denied it to the news media. In addition the Energy Committee had a 2005 map from KEMA Inc that showed the wind turbines would generate over 40 decibels on Black Smith Shop Road.
The Assistant Town Manager and manager of Falmouth Wind I told the news media : "We took on a huge risk and I think we were successful but we’re a large community and I think we can take on that risk.” At that time the town was hiding the Vestas noise warning the wind turbines generate 110 decibels of noise.
The Falmouth Board of Health has ignored thousands of written certified noise complaints. The Falmouth Board of Health designed the written certified noise complaints. Over the years board members have been replaced with associates from the Friends of Falmouth Wind that advocate operation of the turbines for financial consideration ignoring the health of the public.
The original politicians who brought the Town of Falmouth the wind turbine noise described as torture from lack of sleep and inability to work out in your yards during the daytime are long gone.
Governor Deval Patrick and his cronies are also long gone. Everyone associated with the Massachusetts Democratic Party so called war on fossil fuels all got promotions.
The State of Massachusetts had a commercial wind turbine agenda of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020.
The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center wind manager Nils Bolgen in 2013 changed wind turbine setbacks to 2000 feet to residential property lines ending wind installations in heavily populated locations in Massachusetts - Your back yard.
The state has only installed 115 megawatts of wind turbine as of 2017. The land based commercial wind industry is dead in Massachusetts with no wind turbines on the drawing board. Massachusetts has abandoned the wind turbine agenda.
Falmouth taxpayers have to ask why they are spending up to $300,000.00 every six months on wind turbine litigation while the state has given up the wind turbine agenda.
How much longer will it take for taxpayers to wake up ? When your broke ?

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/
