The Valentine’s Day hearing on the the DEP/DPH panel report will be anything but a love-in. The panel was determined to discount or ignore any research that suggested health impacts. But they could not deny the lack of evidence that turbines are safe, so a frequent refrain of the report is “insufficient epidemiological studies” and “more studies needed.” This is the point Wind Wise ~ Massachusetts has been making. Do a real health study, not a literature review. Or better yet, listen to the people actually living with turbines.
The agencies entrusted with protecting people are instead protecting big wind and big political ambitions.
