In Massachusetts, Freedom of Information Act requests have turned up evidence of the massive political pressure put on the FAA to ignore its own experts about the danger posed to aircraft navigating Nantucket Sound.  We will speak to Audra Parker, the President and CEO of the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound about their call for an investigation.  

Wind turbines do not age gracefully. We will speak with John P. Harrison, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Physics Department, Queens University Ontario about research indicating that capacity factors decline as wind turbines get older.
