The location is Massachusetts Maritime Academy, 101 Academy Drive, Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts 02532
The wind turbine demonstration begins at 11 AM
The point of the informational demonstration this year is to bring attention to the commercial wind turbine noise fiasco in twenty one communities.The most recent Plymouth and Bourne. Falmouth is ground zero for poorly placed wind turbines in the United States
Article 97 of the Massachusetts Constitution “ The people shall have the right to clean air and water, freedom from excessive and unnecessary noise……”
Massachusetts Noise Regulation 310 CMR 7.10(1) : “No person owning, leasing or controlling a source of sound shall willfully, negligently, or through failure to provide necessary equipment, service or maintenance or to take necessary precautions cause, suffer, allow, or permit unnecessary emissions from said source of sound that may cause noise.”
The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative today the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center in 2005 waned of two distinct types of noise The two types of noise were “regulatory” measured in decibels and “human annoyance” measured in low frequency.
Massachusetts citizens health and well-being have been negatively affected by the operation of the turbines. (Sleep disturbance, headaches, increase in blood pressure, shortness of breath, tinnitus, vertigo, to mention some symptoms).
In January 2012, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (“MassDEP”) together with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (“DPH”) WIND TURBINE HEALTH IMPACT STUDY found that noise from wind turbines can result in sleep disruption and annoyance.
Massachusetts held at least three public hearings, over 500 comments received. Many comments concern noise, infra sound.
Shadow flicker was also a concern. At sunset and sunrise the sun passing through the blades creates a strobe affect in many homes
Local town governments like Falmouth and Fairhaven have initiated their own written certified noise complaint forms. Thousands of complaints have been ignored.
The Attorney General is the chief lawyer and law enforcement officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In addition,the office is an advocate and resource for the Commonwealth and its residents in many areas, including protecting consumers. Massachusetts has created a second class group of citizens living under the blades of these commercial wind turbines.
The Massachusetts state constitution does not allow the creation of second class citizens
Massachusetts state and local officials since 2005 have been ignoring the health and property rights of citizens for a commercial wind turbine renewable energy agenda gone horribly wrong.
Every time a wind turbine goes up in a residential neighborhood the state takes no action and the neighbors have to hire a law firm.
The state rather than enact existing noise rules and regulations is helping finance the Town of Falmouth litigation fees against its own citizens.The state is using tax money collected through your electric bills to help finance litigation against those paying their electric bills
Here is a portion of a press release from the Mass CEC stating they will pay for the Town of Falmouth litigation fees :
“With this funding, MassCEC seeks to help the town recover costs associated with project curtailment. To date the town has incurred unexpected costs resulting from community concerns, voluntary reductions in operation due to unanticipated sound levels and related litigation.”
The bottom line :
The State of Massachusetts is not going to help you. You have to help yourself protect your health and property rights
These 400 foot commercial wind turbines do not belong near residential neighborhoods taking your health and property rights for an agenda gone horribly wrong

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.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
