WBUR Reports on Anticipated Turbine Vote in Falmouth
Neil Andersen and John Ford know more than they want to about the impacts of wind turbines. Their disappointment and anxiety comes through the WBUR radio story “Falmouth To Vote On Removing Wind Turbines” reported by Bob Oakes and Kathleen McNerney (4/2/13).
According to Andersen:
“If I had the choice tomorrow I would move away and just hopefully never hear the word ‘turbine’ again in my life,” he said. But Andersen said no one would want to buy his house because of all the trouble he’s had living there since the turbines were installed.
For Ford, the choice is simple: “I don’t want to move. I like where I am. … I think the turbines should have to move.”
A special town meeting on 9th may decide the future of the two town-owned turbines. The Webb turbine powering a commercial property is not affected by this decision.
