Falmouth must do right by neighbors of turbines

Cape Cod Times | November 22, 2012 |

What is wrong with the town of Falmouth? Doesn’t it care for the health of its own citizens? Is the supposed saving of a few dollars for the town’s energy worth the health of the people affected by the wind turbines?

Recently, just three days at one of the homes near the turbines was enough to give me an earache, something I’d never experienced in my life. The earache disappeared shortly after I left the area, but returned when I returned to that house.

I can’t imagine that the few dollars that each of the people of Falmouth are saving are worth the health of their neighbors, most of whom are not in a position to abandon their homes, and certainly cannot sell them.

Come on, Falmouth, do the right thing … stop those wind turbines!
