Gov. Patrick has badly hurt renewable energy industry  

Credit:  Cape Cod Times | July 30, 2013 | www.capecodonline.com ~~

Judging from the politicized science that several Falmouth wind advocates incessantly pound us with, we victims are simply imagining all the adverse effects we are claiming from living too close to Falmouth’s operating industrial wind turbines.

Fairhaven, Scituate, Kingston and at least 17 other turbine-plagued towns in Massachusetts have logged thousands of similar complaints, and yet Gov. Deval Patrick is plowing ahead with his unachievable energy policy with the goal of 2,000 megawatts of wind power by 2020.

This guy is either oblivious to the plight of the victims or so absorbed in his prior year’s goals that he simply does not care. His policies have set back the renewable energy possibilities of this state at least 10 years.

Why did he not pursue a solution to the problems of too-close siting and then carry on? By ignoring the many problems and complexities of this issue, he pulled the rug out from under the renewable industry in Massachusetts. He alone has damaged the renewable energy industry beyond repair by turning his back on the real problems resulting from hundreds of people having their lives uprooted and disrupted by his energy policy.

He would have done better for himself if he had gotten out of Massachusetts politics a few years ago.
