DEP/DPH “Expert” Panel-Last Hearing is in Western MA on 2/28/12

February 27, 2012

Join Wind Wise ~ Massachusetts in Lee on Tuesday Februrary 28. Expose the junk science in the MassDEP’s Wind Science Panel Report. The public hearing runs from 5-8 pm at the Lee Middle and High School Auditorium at 300 Greylock Street.

The panel discounted or ignored research that suggested health impacts. But the lack of evidence that turbines are safe led them to the refrain “more studies needed.”

Windwise ~ Massachusetts has called for an immediate epidemiological study on the effects of living near wind turbines, charging that the DEP and DPH have failed the people of Massachusetts with the inadequate study that they released in January.

For more information, see the 1/17/12 Press Release–Windwise ~ Massachusetts calls for immediate epidemiological study on health effects of wind turbines and the post Study Findings Whitewash Health Impacts.

This is the final hearing. Snow date is February 29 at the same place and time.  The comment period continues to March 19, 2012.

    Not junk science – No science!! Especially for acoustics.
    No con-science. They knew from Vinalhaven pre-licensing in 2009 that meteorological conditions of Falmouth, Fairhaven, Bourne etc would increase noise and should have known it would produce malignant amplitude modulation of the aerodynamic noise. However, the un-biased director of UMass RERL says he was not involved in the Bourne project & so wrote his support.
