Please Pray For Falmouth Wind Turbine Victims   http://www.topix.com/forum/state/ma/T768UHEV0QLL5RAVQ   If the Town of Falmouth believes in a higher power, then we all should believe in prayer. The town has been selfish treating the neighbors around the wind turbines as disposable residents for the sake of the false hope of a perpetual revenue stream from poorly sited wind turbines.

Falmouth, Massachusetts, has become "Ground Zero" for health issues and the global fight over stupidly placed industrial wind turbines.

The local town politicians have organized an anonymous group called the "Friends of Falmouth Wind." The group is made up of local officials, doctors, business groups and former members of the Falmouth Energy Committee in an effort to discredit wind turbine victims suffering from noise and lack of sleep around the turbines. The group operates much like the 1950s Ku Klux Klan where the Klan was actually the local government. The "Friends of Falmouth Wind" operate in the same capacity.

The Massachusetts Democratic Platform asks for an all out war on fossil fuel emissions. The renewable energy goal of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020 has turned officials of the state into a regime taking residential property rights from the original stakeholders and the health of thousands of residents.

Please believe in the power of prayer. We have a greater power who is all-knowing and all-loving and if you pray to stop the evil your prayers will be answered in one way or another.

Bill Carson (actually Frank Haggerty) - is there any place in your prayers for the victims of climate change and pollution from fossil fuels? Or for those who work every day in a coal mine, or live near a nuclear power plant, or those who fight in Mideast wars to protect US oil interests in far-flung nations? Or is your piety reserved for the victims of your prolific fear mongering?

The Falmouth residents who moved to Falmouth before the wind turbines bought homes in a residentially zoned location. These people ,many of whom chose the location for its peace and quiet. The idea was to get the American Dream of a home and happiness with the bundle of residential rights that come with them. Many of the residents around the turbines worked at nuclear plants, coal mines and severed combat time in the military in order to reach that dream. Falmouth never needed any wind turbines in the first place. The Town of Falmouth would have been better off without them. The towns of Rochester, Dartmouth, Mattapoisett and Marion refused to place these giant megawatt turbines that look like a tooth brush sticking out a toilet in their towns and they are doing just fine without them. These turbines are a catastrophic economic failure that make people sick and don't belong in residential neighborhoods - The Select Board members should resign as soon as possible. Think about saying some prayers for the victims

Environmentalists have been duped by wind energy industrialists into believing that wind is an alternative to fossil fuel. To understand why such claims have no merit, one needs to comprehend the difference between power and energy. Power plants provide power as needed. Wind turbine energy needs to be used as it becomes available. When a wind turbine is added to the grid, a power plant must always be available to balance wind’s variability. So, the addition of turbines, like the three in Falmouth, will not result in the elimination of any existing power plant. Conventional power plants will have to constantly increase or decrease the energy they deliver inversely as wind power is generated. This need for balance is what turns wind turbines into power plants. But in doing so, one cannot escape the conclusion that the addition of a wind turbines is unnecessary, since the backup power plants can do the job with or without the wind turbine. So, not only do we have to pay for wind energy at more than four times the going rate, we have to continue to pay for existing power plants just to keep the lights on for when the wind dies. Even if the cost of wind energy drops to match the going rate, its cost will always be an add-on. Environmentalists need to understand the difference between power and energy and come out against renewable energy before the price of electricity skyrockets, and wind turbines are planted in everyone’s back yard.

Commercial megawatt turbines are power plants by themselves with electronics, batteries, transformers that actually use between 25 and 30 % of the power that is produced by the turbine itself. Commercial megawatt turbines installed in New England since 2008 require gear box replacement and blade inspection every three to five years at 1 million in maintenance and then again in another 3 to 5 years. The turbines over 1.5 megawatt create too much noise in residential neighborhoods causing sickness. Falmouth never needed the turbines anyway. The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative offered the town one million dollars in advance to get the five year old turbines off their books Wind 1 - Fool me once Wind 2 -Fool me twice - Time to pray ! What ever happened to Falmouth ? This is going to go on until the turbines break down and need major repairs ! Then we'll see people come out of the wood work asking why they were never told about the million dollars in maintenance at 3 to 5 years ...
