Falmouth Massachusetts Wind Turbines Déjà Vu or Insanity

Falmouth, Massachusetts today is considering placing buried onshore wind turbine high voltage cables through residential neighborhoods up to 345,000 volts. 
Studies show that HVDE, high voltage dirty electricity could disrupt important electrical processes within the human body. Long-term exposure to this type of electro-pollution has been associated with a wide variety of health problems such as cancer, asthma, sleep disturbances, fatigue, skin rashes, tingling sensations, allergy symptoms, headaches, muscle and joint pain, brain fog, memory loss, depression, and more.
In the United States, there are two types of high-voltage lines referred to as HVAC, high voltage alternating current, and HVDC, high voltage direct current. Alternating current is the type of power in every US household.
Studies were done in the 1970s and 1980s. They studied various children in different locations in the United States and compared multiple risk factors including electric magnetic fields in high voltage alternating current cables.
It was found that an excess of high-voltage alternating electrical current, EMF, was flowing through various locations. Children who lived near these areas had a higher rate of developing cancer than children who lived in other locations farther away. 
To date, there are very few high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) transmission systems operating in North America. There are no health studies done for the direct current lines as there is almost none in existence in the United States.
In a 1980 survey of one HVDC power line called the "Minnesota Landowner Health Perceptions Survey" 35% of the respondents said they had suffered adverse health effects that they attributed to the HDVC power line. 
An epidemiologic study was not conducted on the residents. This study and investigation could have compared two or more groups of people who are alike except for one factor, the 400,000-volt high voltage direct current power line.
Today there are no epidemiologic studies for HVDC in the United States.
The direct current (HVDC) transmission systems market is expected to grow from 2022 to 2027 with the introduction of offshore wind submarine cables using direct current cables to onshore transmission points where power will be converted to alternating current. 
In the 1980s in Boone, North Carolina, and other locations commercial wind turbines caused the noise, shadow flicker, and disruption of the line of sight communications (TV). 
Commercial wind companies and state agencies despite the noise issues from the 1980s went forward installing wind turbines near residential neighborhoods starting in 2010 in Falmouth, Massachusetts.
Noise and shadow flickers produced by wind turbines became the two major elements associated with health problems. Residents have stated many different health effects from noise including an increase in psychological distress and physiological stress, the leading health impact is caused by sleep disturbance. 
Falmouth, Massachusetts is the site of the worst-sited commercial wind turbines in the United States installed in 2010 and 2012. The courts determined the turbines were a nuisance and will be demolished around August 1, 2022.
The Falmouth, Massachusetts Select Board is now contemplating allowing an offshore wind company to place a buried 345,000 High Voltage Direct Current group of cables through residential locations and place a massive substation. 
Déjà vu means expressing the feeling that one has lived through the present situation before.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

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/

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.
