The State of Massachusetts has declared war on commercial wind turbine victims. Taking constitutional residential property rights with NO compensation. The turbines are causing sleep disturbances and health injuries .The victims describe it as torture.

The Massachusetts Democratic Party Platform has declared a war on fossil fuels. The party has prioritized its attention and action on the scale equivalent to a major war. The decision has been made to take immediate action at all levels of government. Massachusetts has a renewable energy goal of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020. The quickest way to get there is commercial wind turbines.

The placement of commercial megawatt wind turbines in Southeast Massachusetts and Cape Cod in the past few years has resulted in the collateral damage of the health and well being of residential home owners. The turbines cause shadow flicker and create two types of noise causing a lack of sleep and general ill health.

Residents in Falmouth and Fairhaven had to file long drawn out certified written complaint forms in order to make a complaint against the wind turbines. Thousands of complaints have been made and not one wind turbine victim has been examined by the state of Massachusetts.
