( KJ.com EXCLUSIVE VIDEO) GOING INSIDE KINGSTON’S SHADOW-FLICKER ZONE

LELAND ROAD- Middle-school student Brian Reilly says he can’t play basketball on Leland Road when the strobing effect from the Kingston Wind Independence (KWI) Turbine’s shadow flicker is at full throttle.“I get a wicked bad headache so I have to go inside,” Brian told the Journal as he stood on the front steps of his neighbors house.

Dan Alves, also a resident of Leland Road, refuses to allow his epileptic son to stay in his bedroom when the KWI Turbine’s shadow flicker penetrates into his house.“That’s pretty much the rule,” Alves told the Journal on Friday afternoon.“We don’t want him in his room but we’re not always home so we can’t control it.”

The KWI Turbine can be seen behind Dan Alves’ home on Leland Road during a cloudy day.
Alves said that he has asked next-door neighbors to check on his son when he’s not home.“My next-door neighbor actually came over and asked [my son] to leave the room,” Alves said.

“You can’t concentrate,” Alves said as he sat in his dining room speaking with reporters and squinting into the flicker from the KWI Turbine.“You can’t read a book, you can’t read the paper, you can’t relax.”

Alves said his wife is also affected by the KWI Turbine and has refused to use her kitchen when the flicker occurs.

The Journal spent nearly an hour and a half at Alves’ Leland Road residence on Friday and documented flicker from 4:35 to 5:20 p.m.

Alves said the flicker had begun 15 minutes beforethe Journal arrived, which would bring the duration of Friday’s shadow-flicker event to 60 minutes at the Alves homestead.

“If folks knew exactly what was going on with our daily lives…we can’t enjoy our own property…they would side with us,” Alves said.

Alves also said he believes that the public misconceives the effects that the KWI Turbine has on areas within range of the turbine’s shadow flicker and noise pollution.“It is hard to believe, I’ll admit it,” Alves said.

Alves added that he does not think the siting of the KWI Turbine, which sits atop the capped landfill on land leased from the Town of Kingston, was appropriate.

“Shut the turbine off,” Alves said.“That’s the only thing I’ll be satisfied with…it just doesn’t make sense to put this [turbine] in the middle of a residential neighborhood.”

This video shows a home turned into a torture chamber. State and town officials are committing atrocities against civilians.

This video clip will some day show the events as a documentary. Massachusetts has a renewable energy goal of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020. This means as many as 3000 commercial land based wind turbines in Massachusetts.

The state in their zeal for renewable energy made scores and hundreds of residents sick from the poor siting of commercial wind turbines.

The planning, the preparatory measures and execution of Massachusetts Model By Laws to be used by local towns is well documented.

History shows us that those that have conducted and condoned human experiments in the past have always been brought to justice. The state and towns are committing crimes against its citizens.

Today the state and local government blame what has happened on the victims.
