Mr. Michael J. Rzewuski, Chairman
Zoning Board of Review
Charlestown, Rhode Island

July 9, 2013

Dear Chairman Rzewuski and Members of the Zoning Board of Review,

As residents of Massachusetts know, it seems that every day brings some new report of the profound tragedy that has been imposed on communities that have recently condoned the installation of industrial wind turbines, including (but not limited to) Falmouth, Fairhaven, Kingston and Scituate.

Some notable recent bulletins from Fairhaven and Falmouth (where the Board of Health and the Board of Selectmen, respectively, have ordered curtailment of the wind turbine operations) are reprinted below.

This news should provide a loud wake-up call to the Town of Charlestown, RI or any other town that contemplates the possibility of treading down the same path for all of the following reasons:

In every one of these towns Falmouth, Fairhaven, Kingston and Scituate the developers insisted that fears about the disruptive adverse impacts of the wind turbines upon the health and well-being of the residents, their quality of life and their property values were overblown. In every single instance, the wind turbine proponents were tragically wrong; in every single instance, there have been widespread complaints regarding each one of these adverse impacts.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
