    FYI – Submitted Government’s Obligation & Responsibility: A perspective – past to present To Wisconsin’s Brown County Board of Health,

    Let me begin by urging continued perseverance. Wisconsin has a long tradition of social welfare legislation and regulation protection.  As example, In 1911, Wisconsin pioneered the first successful workers’ compensation program in response to public concern for the condition of the working classes.  Many changes have beset government and with them, legislation and regulation that has been promoted to protected the public.  Once the recent need was recognized by Brown County’s Board of Health, through relatively unscientific yet shocking accounts of the conditions under which some citizens live, a declaration was made.  I sincerely thank you! As the Board is aware, the chief duty of any regulatory body is to enforce the laws. The chief law of all boards of health, while exercising common sense and reason, is protecting the health and welfare of those placed in their charge. I could share with your board my air traffic control testimony offered to the Falmouth MA  Board of Health (May 24, 2012) involving a near mid-air collision after chronic sleep deprivation believed caused by our community’s wind project.  Instead, as a member of my community’s zoning board of appeals, I call upon the Boards’ good sense that it takes government to establish the rules of the game assuring fair play between industry and residents that don’t have the resources to protect themselves. In terms of law, justice to the health and welfare of a citizen under your charge requires a process, first and foremost, of protection.  To be clear, to date (supported by Health Canada’s preliminary findings), no clear, predictable and protective environmental standards exist that safely ensures wind energy generation facilities are sited in appropriate locations.  Until proven otherwise, the law, common sense and reason dictate, and it is my humble plea, that the Brown County Board of Health take necessary steps, in line with their responsibilities, to mitigate and regulate current and proposed wind energy projects. Respectfully Submitted, Mark J. CoolFalmouth Massachusetts
