A Community Divided Over Wind TurbinesPlay
Tensions are running high in the Cape Cod community of Falmouth after last night's Town Meeting, which failed to approve a measure to dismantle the town's two wind turbines.
Falmouth would have become the first community in the country to decide to tear its turbines down, at a cost of $14 million — almost half of which would have had to be borrowed.
The vote needed a two-thirds majority, but fell just short — 125-72 — angering many residents who've long complained about the turbines' ill effects on their health.
