Where is the Falmouth Board of Health?
by Mark J. Cool
Last night's Falmouth Town Meeting saw NO INPUT from the Falmouth Board of Health (BoH). Instead, Town Administrators deflected from the article's intent of being one about 'health', to it being, rather about financial devastation if the town wind turbines suspended operation for 5 months.
Town Meeting Members should be demanding Health information from the BoH. The BoH has taken the stance of "wanting the FACTS". Isn't it reasonable to think the Town Meeting Members are owed the same?
It's obvious, the facts of the health issue will not be found through numbers of how much "clean energy" is generated, how many tons of CO2 eliminated or how many $ of energy cost saved. UNTIL Real Falmouth Health Facts are shared, the community's conscience cannot take comfort in clean energy benefits while suffering neighbors are sacrificed.
