Health of the residential abutters is the number one concern . These people have families in which small children could have health effects from the wind turbines.

This is about the heath of hundreds of families in Fairhaven, Scituate, Kingston and Falmouth.

NIMBY used to mean Not In My Back Yard now it means Next It May Be You.

The Massachusetts court system has a very long history. In the past few years wind turbine disagreements between residential home owners and wind turbines have been decided in most part in favor of the wind turbines.

In many towns in Massachusetts residential home owners are the original stake holders who purchased property in residentially zoned locations only to have 400 foot industrial wind turbines placed in their back yards.

Massachusetts has a renewable energy goal of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020. The state has dragged out wind turbine noise studies in a hope that residents would give up and go away .

Now citizens of Massachusetts are watching the legal system drag out legal decisions as long as possible. Many of us understand Massachusetts has two sets of laws .One for us the citizen and one for the corporations.
