This is typically caused by glazed/slipping drive belts. Have your belts and tensioners checked for wear and proper operation. There also may be something leaking on your belts, like coolant, which will make them squeal.

a high pitched squeal under hard accel or aggresive driving can be caused by a timid spouse. try driving without her. (just kidding) dandd is most likely right.
