Are Wind Turbines Safe?
Proposed Wind farm in Douglas Mass – developers are saying wind power is clean and quiet and safe, even at the proposed 1000 ft setbacks. Residents nearby to other wind farms say otherwise, in fact are audible at over 1 mile away. In the event of a turbine failure, blades can fly over 4500 ft in any direction. There seems to be more to the story than just clean and quiet energy. There have been over 730 wind turbine accidents in the past 10 years, resulting in some 40 deaths. Do you want wind turbines in YOUR back yard?
