The town of Fairhaven, MA is building two really big wind turbines. A small group is opposed because the "flicker" is going to kill us all. I suppose there have to be the naysayers to bring things to a head, but this group seems kind of nutty. It's the same people who opposed the bike path, the bridge repairs, the radio tower, road work and bike lanes on the roads. None opposed WalMart, AT&T or Titlest Golf getting tax abatements. It's a sign of the times I suppose.
Fortunately, the town proceeded in spite of the trivial law suits and the first tower went up in a day. Today is the "blade signing". We are riding over there to put our names on the blade, show our support and to be a part of the town going green.
