Green energy’s ‘dirty little secret’

Three 400 feet tall, 1.63 megawatt wind turbines are making Massachusetts residents sick, they say.

Symptoms include headaches, ringing in the ears, insomnia and fall-down-flat dizziness, Sue Hobart, who lives in the shadow of one of the turbines on Cape Cod, tells ABC News.

A doctor at Harvard Medical School diagnosed Hobart with wind turbine syndrome, a condition not recognized by the CDC.

Nina Pierpont, a pediatrician whose husband is an anti-wind activist, calls wind turbine syndrome the green energy industry’s “dirty little secret.”

Dozens of Falmouth residents have filed lawsuits.
