Media takes politicians’ side on wind turbines 

Credit:  March 6, 2013 | www.southcoasttoday.com ~~

SouthCoast and Cape Cod have major issues over the poor siting of commercial wind turbines in residentially zoned locations.

Fairhaven, Falmouth, Scituate and Kingston have thousands of noise complaints. The media is not presenting a fair and balanced report to the public. The noise complaints grow by the day. Fairhaven has had issues with commercial wind for several years that go under-reported.

Massachusetts has a renewable energy goal of 2,000 megawatts of renewable energy by 2020. The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, now the Mass. Clean Energy Center, was at one time housed under the roof of the University of Massachusetts. Engineering students at UMass helped write wind turbine feasibility studies for various towns. Today commercial wind turbine issues are divided by political parties.

The bickering between both political parties has now become a health issue with thousands of residents around commercial wind turbines. The state of Massachusetts drags its feet with health studies, etc.

It’s clear today the news media owes more to the political party of their choice than the health and welfare of the general public. It’s clear the state of Massachusetts made a mistake siting megawatt turbines too closely to residential homes. These are the people who buy your newspapers.
