State ignoring health issues  

Credit:  Rutland Herald | March 25, 2014 | www.rutlandherald.com ~~

Where are the agencies that are supposed to represent the residents of Vermont when recurring and harmful health problems surface?

How can it be said that these large-scale wind facilities are benign? Many people have complained about headaches, nausea, lack of restful sleep, heart problems, tinnitus, etc. The complaints have been ignored, hidden, dismissed and/or marked confidential.

To my knowledge, not one interview has been conducted by the state to prove or disprove the problem. If the Health Department was doing its job, they would put impartial employees in the field and conduct interviews with every resident around the operating projects in Sheffield, Lowell and Georgia Mountain. It isn’t a lot of people to interview, but there are a lot of issues.

In every other instance where Vermonters have been affected by health problems the Department of Health is there to do studies and address the issue.

Why haven’t the Department of Public Service and the Department of Health interviewed project neighbors? Are they getting political pressure not to do these studies?

Follow the money.
