Massachusetts Wind Turbines A Litigation Gold Rush
The Falmouth wind turbine installations it has brought on a new gold rush. Chances are, with this “Gold Rush,” if you are a Massschusetts resident, and especially if you are a home owner near turbines, you will need to hire an attorney to protect your health and property rights as the state has an agenda that does not include you.
The bottom line is the State of Massachusetts through the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center has taken your health and property rights with no compensation for the state wind turbine agenda .
Massachusetts taxpayers are having their pockets picked to install commercial wind turbines in highly residential locations and picked again to defend the commercial wind turbines from other taxpayers demanding due process who want their health and property rights back. Everyone is losing the only ones making money are the attorneys.
Massachusetts taxpayers need to find out how dumb they are compared to the rest of the world.
The Massachusetts State Democratic Party platform under climate change has called for an all out war on fossil fuels and the party is fighting that war as a real war. The wind turbine victims in as many as twenty communities living around the commercial megawatt turbines are considered collateral damage in the so called war.
Recently a Massachusetts official admitted state politicians don't care if you get sick from the turbines. This brings back historical facts of how the German population during World War II never spoke out about the camps and followed the political agenda.
Well over ten years ago wind turbine power was touted as a clean and increasingly cost-competitive source of electric energy.
Policy makers convinced the public at large to demand cleaner alternatives to fossil energy or face the so called catastrophic effects of climate change.
Massachusetts had a plan to install 3000 wind turbines by the year 2020.
A wind turbine renewable energy plan of 2000 megawatts of wind power with each wind turbine around 1 to 2 megawatts each totaling 3000 megawatts
Nils Bolgen the wind turbine director at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center as a result of wind turbine noise complaints in 2013 changed setbacks to 2000 feet and the Cape Cod Commission about 3000 foot setbacks for megawatt turbines.
Falmouth is ground zero for poorly placed wind turbines in the United States.
Massachusetts has twenty one communities with poorly placed wind turbines taking health and property rights.
Bourne recently had 4 monster 2 megawatt wind turbines placed on its border in Plymouth.
The neighbors in Bourne were recently told that Massachusetts officials don't care if you get sick living next to a wind turbine. At least now Massachusetts politicians are known not to care if you get sick as was stated at a recent meeting.
The Bourne neighbors like those of other neighborhoods will be hiring an attorney while the state pulls out the play book on wind turbines to stall as long as they can making noise tests, seeking public comment and in general ignore the health and property rights for the wind agenda.
The wind program near residential homes should be over in Massachusetts and looks today to almost have ground to a halt over noise complaints. It's time to clean up the mess in which our politicians have left in the hands of the court to do.
The Town of Falmouth in November 2016 voted to spend up to $460,000.00 on litigation. Town Meeting meets twice a year in which up to $300,000.00 every six months is going to litigation fees. The town faces years of future litigation.
State and local boards of health refuse to enforce noise laws as they interfere with the state renewable energy agenda. The wind turbine agenda in Massachusetts was more important than the health of up to 200 residential home owners in each of the twenty one towns creating a group of second class citizens in Massachusetts living under the wind turbines
The people who live around the wind turbines complaining about the noise issues and inability to sleep have the same story world wide. They describe the noise as torture from lack of sleep or unable to work in their yards while the turbines operate.
The US Department of Energy and NASA completed a study in 1985 by Neil Kelly that showed the affects of infra sound on residents in Boone, North Carolina. Massachusetts officials along with the wind industry ignored the warnings from over 30 years ago
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/
