WESRA Hearing 10/20/2011

Join WWMA members from across the state to tell the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy not to approve a siting bill that will rob communities of their right to zone and regulate industrial development.  Barnstable High School in Hyannis is the location for the hearing   from 10 am to 4 pm on October 20th. WESRA, the wind energy siting reform act, is now called An Act Relative to comprehensive siting reform for land based wind project  and its language is contained in several bills (H.01759 ; H.01775 ; S.1666 )

Creating a Special Commission to Study the Health Impacts of Wind Turbines

The Joint Committee on Public Health listened attentively to the testimony of Wind Wise members from the Cape and Brimfield on the need for an independent commission to study health effects of wind turbines. Among those testifying were Sue Hobart, Neil Anderson, and Barry Funfar, who live in Falmouth. They have all been affected, particularly by the sound–both audible and sub-audible–from two turbines in the town. Hobart said she is going to have to “abandon the home I built ten years ago, where I work out of the house as a florist. I’ve already closed the business.” She told the committee to “look into infrasound. We are emotional wrecks. We used to be solid business people.”
