Industrial wind is a bunco scheme of enormous consequence. And people who value intellectual honesty should not quietly be fleeced by such mendacity, even from their government.

Look at what happened in Falmouth ,Massachusetts people are living in their basements !

Look at what happened with the Portsmouth School wind turbine !

This thing is a Trojan Horse ! It'll take 2500 commercial wind turbines to get rid of the power plant in Fall River ,Ma,

The Town of jamestown needs to notify all the residents around Bryer Point and anyone within 3000 feet of the turbine about shadow flicker ,noise and property value loss in any residentially zoned locations . Today not a year from now !
