Falmouth Citizens’ Request for Emergency State Aid for Families Suffering Around Industrial Wind Turbines

WHEREAS Gaps remain in our knowledge of the impact that wind energy may have on human health.

WHEREAS Deployment of wind turbines has created an emergency relating to public health, safety, and welfare; is arbitrary and capricious; and is now imposing an undue hardship on landowners and residents adjacent to wind turbine sites in Falmouth.

WHEREAS Wind turbine installations have created an emergency relating to public health, safety and welfare of citizens effected by noise and shadow flicker coincident with wind turbine operation.

WHEREAS the Town's inaction to protect human health and safety has allowed continued operation of these industrial wind turbines.

WHEREAS the Town has created an environment that has resulted in undue hardships that have forced families to vacate their homes to regain their health; and to close their home business.

WHEREAS the Mass DEP and DPH commissioned wind turbine health study failed to incorporate evidence of harm provided, Peer Reviewed and Direct Evidence offered by affected citizens that accurately describes the cause, conditions, and adverse health effects they are experiencing.

WHEREAS the responsibility falls with the Town to advocate for the health and safety of Falmouth families compromised by wind turbine operations.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the undersigned and affected citizens of Massachusetts’ request emergency response by shut down of all wind turbines where citizens have filed complaints with towns and/or the State; and financial relocation assistance is provided to those families suffering adverse health effects and undue hardships caused by the irresponsible placement of industrial wind turbines around their homes and property. Emergency financial assistance is requested until the conditions that have caused these undue hardships are studied and resolved, allowing these families to once return and be safe in their homes and property.

Falmouth citizens requesting the emergency response and/or financial assistance, due to the dramatic decline of their health and quality of life or that of their neighbors, coincident to the operation of wind turbines, are herein identified.
