Wellfleet isn’t fooled by Audubon’s turbine spin  

Credit:  Cape Cod Times | September 25, 2013 | www.capecodonline.com ~~

The recently reported comments of Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary Director Robert Prescott regarding Mass Audubon’s proposal to install a 142-foot wind turbine in the sanctuary are disingenuous and untrue.

Mr. Prescott says the proposed wind turbine is “no different than a half-dozen smaller turbines that already exist in several neighboring towns.” He is also quoted as saying that it’s “not about the project, it’s about the process,” and that if the townspeople don’t want it, Mass Audubon won’t pursue the project.

In fact, as Mr. Prescott knows, there has been vigorous opposition to the proposal and the townspeople do not want the wind turbine.

The proposed wind turbine would be much larger than ones in neighboring towns. And none of those other wind turbines have been erected in the heart of a wildlife preserve – which is one of the chief objections to the radical Mass Audubon proposal.

Mass Audubon has been dishonest with its members, the town of Wellfleet, the Cape Cod Commission and the general public at every stage of the process – relentlessly spinning the wind turbine proposal. Such deceit is unworthy of Mass Audubon – and fooling no one.
