Junk Science

Calling it “Junk Science,” Raymond S. Hartman, an MIT-trained mathematical economist, reviewed the “The Wind Turbine Health Impact Study.” he outlines the bases for mistrusting the conclusions the DEP/DPH expert panel reached.

Junk science is faulty scientific data and analysis used to advance special interests and hidden agendas.

The DEP/DPH panel could have called for the needed epidemiological study, but instead the “experts” discounted existing scholarly evidence and called vaguely for further study.

Hartman, who lives in Shelburne, runs Greylock McKinnon Associates, an economic consulting firm.

Residents of Massachusetts towns where industrial wind turbines are proposed are fortunate to have Falmouth residents speaking out about their experiences. In places where commercial rather than municipal turbines have been sited, leaseholders and abutters are often silenced by gag clauses. This has been an impediment to researchers of wind health effects.
