We will be talking with leaders in the efforts to save Massachusetts from the onslaught of the Patrick administration and the wind developers who are attempting to put their political ambitions and their greed ahead of the interests of the citizens of Massachusetts.


Louise Barteau is an environmental artist living and working in Fairhaven, MA. Her studio is located approximately 1200' from Fairhaven's two 400' Industrial Wind Turbines which were installed this winter and are about to be turned on this month. A reluctant activist, she was drawn into a troubling tale of covert actions between the developers, Fairhaven Wind, and the town government that began years ago when the town passed its liberal wind energy by-laws in 2004.
Ann DeNardis is a tireless advocate in the struggle against the improper siting of  industrial scale wind turbines.  She is an accomplished lawyer from New Bedford, Massachusetts.
Viginia Irvine is one of the founding members of Wind Wise Massachusetts – an alliance of grass roots organizations and individuals who are concerned about the negative health, environmental, and economic impacts of poorly-sited wind turbines.
Andrew Wells has been active on wind issues in MA since 2006, first on the Cape and more recently in western MA, where he resides. In 2007 he fought a four turbine project proposed mere hundreds of feet  from a densely settled residential  neighborhood in Eastham. He served on a wind turbine bylaw committee that recommended siting standards.. In 2010 he served as chairman of another wind turbine bylaw committee, this time in the Berkshire hilltown of Ashfield, site of several proposed wind projects
