WindWise-Massachusetts, a citizen group that opposes wind energy development, has written a letter to the Departments of Public Health and Environmental Protection requesting a temporary moratorium on industrial-scale wind turbines in Massachusetts:
A statewide group of more than 400 Massachusetts residents, including doctors, psychologists, and health professionals, have petitioned the Commissioners of Public Health and Environmental Protection to declare a moratorium on the construction of new industrial wind turbines in the Commonwealth.
As residents of 106 Massachusetts cities and towns, signers of the letter urge a temporary suspension of turbine development until further research into human health effects can be conducted and safe setbacks from residential neighborhoods determined.
