Wind turbine study assailed
Foes insist facts ‘cherry-picked’
Massachusetts residents insistent that the drone and vibration of land-based wind turbines can shatter the health of nearby communities yesterday invoked the onset of the United States’ HIV/AIDS epidemic to reject a recent report debunking their claims. An independent report concluded last month that wind turbines present little more than an “annoyance’’ to residents and that limited evidence exists to support claims of devastating health impacts. But Falmouth and Western Massachusetts residents argued that the report was biased.
