HVDC Ocean Wind Turbine Cables No Epidemiologic Studies

Falmouth Massachusetts residents recently opposed the onshore buried 345,000-volt Alternating Current power lines coming onshore through residential neighborhoods and an onshore power plant the size of the Falmouth Mall. 
 
The two main issues are noise from the power plant and EMF electric magnetic fields. 
 
There are many other issues about construction time, loss of business, hospital routes, and more with any large commercial project. There is also the question of the Rights of the Way or easement rights often called "restrictive covenants" through parks and land deeded to the town. 
The offshore wind company appears to be changing to HVDC, High Voltage Direct Current cables. 
 
Offshore wind companies will in all likelihood change to HVDC lines in Maine and all along the East Coast.
There is presently four high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) transmission systems operating in North America.
 
There was a questionnaire sent by post and distributed by campaign groups in 1980 to people living near a 400,000 volt HVDC overhead power line in Minnesota, followed up by telephone calls. The survey was called the "Minnesota Landowner Health Perceptions Survey."
 
Up to 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.
 
There are no health studies on the health of people living near High Voltage Direct Current power lines.
 
There are no epidemiological studies done for DC cables vs the Alternating Current cables and EMF
 
There are no public or publicly available studies available for High Voltage Direct Current power lines.
 
The plan in Falmouth, Massachusetts next appears to be for two buried HVDC, High Voltage Direct Current at 345,000 volts.
 
The cables will run through residential locations in Falmouth. 
 
Falmouth was the Pioneer town in Massachusetts to install two commercial wind turbines both declared a nuisance by the Massachusetts courts. The turbines demolition is scheduled around August 1, 2022.  
 
Falmouth Massachusetts may again appear to be a Pioneer town placing 345 KV, 345,000 High Voltage Direct Current Cables near residential homes.
An epidemiologic study of the Minnesota residents should be conducted before the installation of a 345,000-volt onshore wind turbine high voltage direct current buried power line in residential locations in Falmouth, Massachusetts, or anywhere else on the East Coast.
 
Maine residents should take note of the onshore high voltage direct current lines with no studies.

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.
