Falmouth votes to keep wind turbines; Australian sound study confirms others

The town of Falmouth, Mass., on Cape Cod voted overwhelmingly Tuesday against removing two wind turbines installed at its wastewater treatment plant.

The vote in Falmouth was taken in a context in which state health agencies across the U.S., including in Massachusetts, and their counterparts at the national level globally have reported consistently on the overwhelming scientific consensus that sounds generated by wind turbines do not have a direct effect on human health.
Hundreds of thousands of individuals live and work around wind farms around the world without incident. If this were a widespread issue, wind energy would not enjoy the broad societal support we have today
