“The results from the experimental study of sleep deprivation of fairly short durations, which affected the expression of a large range of genes, sheds light on the “Wind Turbine Syndrome (WTS)”, a cluster of symptoms which includes sleep disturbance, fatigue, headaches, dizziness, nausea, changes in mood and inability to concentrate.
Finally, wind turbines considerably reduce the value of dwellings nearby and this has a negative long-term effect on their owners’ and their families’ health. On top of this, increasing numbers of families will be driven into fuel poverty by spiralling electricity costs which are subsidizing wind energy.”
The climate cult talks about supposed “catastrophic climate change” affecting your children’s, children’s, children’s, children. But, they don’t give a toss about the chronic effects that schizophrenic climate solutions, like industrial windmills, are having on people’s livelihoods NOW!
Tsk tsk tsk.
The evidence proving the unnecessary damage done to wind farm neighbours by the noise generated by giant industrial wind turbines is mounting by the day: Germany’s Max Planck Institute has identified sub-audible infrasound as the cause of stress, sleep disruption and more (see our post here); and a Swedish group have shown that it’s the pulsing nature of low-frequency wind turbine noise (‘amplitude modulation’) that is responsible for sleep problems in those forced to live with it (see our post here).
On the same trail, Professor Alun Evans has put together a review of the literature detailing the adverse health effects caused by wind turbine noise emissions. Alun’s paper argues that the wealth of evidence of harm requires public health bodies to do their duty, by exercising the precautionary principle in order to prevent any more unnecessary suffering.
Selected sections of Alun’s paper (minus the references) are presented…

- Most modern or upgraded coal-fire plants, mainly from the west, are required under strict regulations to remove 99% of particulates known as fly-ash. This is why the air in modern cities like Melbourne, Sydney, America and Europe have some of the cleanest air in the world. Compared with the chronically polluted cities of China, SE Asia and the sub-continent, who aren’t required to adhere to strict ‘particulate’ emission standards.
- Most underdeveloped countries simply cannot afford to retro-fit their existing plants to make them clean or simply do without to keep costs down.
- Another example of why the greatest driver of environmental health is economic prosperity. If you want a healthy environment, you need a healthy economy. Draconian climate policy threatens the wealth and prosperity of western economies. Potentially limiting the ability to divert excess capital to innovate and keep improving the overall environment.
One of my pet peeves is the way the media always use images of power stations shot from an angle at a time of day when the steam condensate coming out of cooling towers is made to look like smoke. I mentioned it quite recently as being at the top of my list of annoyances about the way climate and energy issues are reported. Now the Galileo Movement in Australia has made a nice short (2min) video to alert the public to the way they are being lied to, manipulated and deceived.
