You can hear it – and it’s coming here fast

Screen Shot 2013-01-30 at 9.14.36 AMHow many times has he said it?

How many times has Sydney University’s Simon Chapman made the comparison between Wind Turbine Syndrome and the plague of “modern health worries” … like anxiety about mobile phones for instance?

We’ve lost count. But here’s one example. And another. And another.

Here’s his PowerPoint presentation where he compares public fear about mobile phones causing cancer to WTS.  He calls them “psychogenic  illnesses”.

He’s clever, that Simon. (We had to look up the term “psychogenic” in Wikipedia.)

We also understand he gave an address during Clean Energy Week using those same slides. Good gig, those events. Pay well. Nice hotel. Play a little golf. Excellent networking opportunity.

And the chance to pour oil on the increasingly troubled souls of the wind industry.

“Don’t worry. People getting sick? All in their heads. Completely made up. It’s … it’s … what’s that word again? Psychogenic. That’s right. PSYCHOGENIC. Every one up on your chairs and say it out loud. IT’S PSYCHOGENIC!

“Okay, sit down. But here’s the point. You can keeping building your industrial wind installations. Keep raping vast tracts of the Australian countryside. Keep splitting communities. Keep bullying people. Keep schmoozing politicians. And best of all, keep pocketing all that money!”

The room erupts in massive applause. A veritable crescendo of adulation. Onya Simon. Way to go Simon. Where do we send the cheque, Simon?

Well, guess what?

A court in Italy ruled mobile phones can cause brain tumors.

Read the article here.

Angelo Gino Levis, described as “the respected oncologist and professor of environmental mutagenesis”, gave evidence in the case in October.

Prof Levis said: “The court decision is extremely important. It finally recognizes the link.

“It’ll open not a road but a motorway to legal actions by victims. We’re considering a class action.”

Note Britain’s Health Protection Agency dodging the issue, still saying the “scientific consensus” is that mobile phones do not cause cancer.

Don’t you think they sound like Australia’s own National Health and Medical Research Council?

“There is currently insufficient published scientific evidence to positively link wind turbines with adverse health effects.”

We hate to say we told you … but it’s that noise again … that sound. It’s the one of lawyers hurrying to court in wind turbine cases around the world.

You can hear it in the distance, just over the horizon. And it will arrive here with the force of a hurricane.

Mr Chapman, we suggest you put down your drink and find your umbrella.

  1. I thought it might be worth adding something more to Cree’s diagnosis.
    It must be so difficult for a Narcissist to understand when they are wrong, and being a Narcissist Sociologist must make it doubly hard, because some, not all, Sociologists rest their version of an argument on theories which cannot be verified, they cannot through their theories come to the TRUTH of a matter, because they rely so heavily on generalisations because it is easier to fool people that you know what you are talking about.
    If a tomato is a fruit and is red then all tomatoes are red and all fruit is red. So, if one person has a reaction which they describe as their head being in a vice when they are near working industrial wind turbines, everyone must describe the same effect or that person must not be telling the truth. See what I mean.
    It’s so difficult for researchers with such a condition to accept they are wrong, their whole ‘argument’ rests on a falsehood which is everyone has to experience everything in the same way. Truth simply has no place in their lives.

  2. …. put mobile phones on loudspeaker, move clock radios to the foot of the bed and wait until microwaves have finished beeping before opening them.
    “Even though the jury’s not in, just to err on the side of safety I would try and limit the amount of electromagnetic radiation that you’re exposed to,”

    That’s the advice of high profile Australian neurosurgeon Dr. Charlie Teo – but what would he know about mobile phones and cancer?

    Charlie Teo was born in Sydney, Australia and educated at the Scots College. He graduated from the University of New South Wales medical school and embarked on a career in paediatric surgery then neurosurgery, finally sub-specialising in paediatric neurosurgery.
    He was accepted a fellowship in paediatric neurosurgery at the Children’s Medical Center, Dallas, Texas and is the only Australian neurosurgeon to be Board Certified in both Australia and America. Charlie rose to the position of Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Arkansas, and developed an international reputation in the field of minimally invasive neurosurgery.
    Charlie has been an invited speaker and Visiting Professor to over thirty five countries, including such prestigious centres in the USA, as Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, Albert Einstein University and the Barrow Neurological Institute, as well as Marbourg University in Germany.
    He returned to Australia and continued to develop pioneering procedures. He is regularly invited back to the USA to teach courses in these keyhole approaches.

  3. After Mr Chapman replied to an email I had sent to a developer I was seriously concerned with his CV and reports that he sent me, his only medical qualification, which apparently gives him the right to make medical opinions is:
    CHAPMAN Simon Fenton
    Year: 1986
    Degree:PhD in Medicine
    Cigarette Advertising As Myth: A Re-Evaluation Of The Relationship Of Advertising To Smoking

    So as a lay person I thought maybe I could diagnose others as well. I decided to do a little research of my own, I came across Narcissitic Personality Disorder and there you have it, all my concerns about the CV and reports were answered.

    Narcissistic Personality Disorder is characterized by a long-standing pattern of grandiosity (either in fantasy or actual behavior), an overwhelming need for admiration, and usually a complete lack of empathy toward others. People with this disorder often believe they are of primary importance in everybody’s life or to anyone they meet.
    People with narcissistic personality disorder often display snobbish, disdainful, or patronizing attitudes. For example, an individual with this disorder may complain about a clumsy waiter’s “rudeness” or “stupidity” or conclude a medical evaluation with a condescending evaluation of the physician.

    Symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder

    In order for a person to be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) they must meet five or more of the following symptoms:
    •Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
    •Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
    •Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
    •Requires excessive admiration
    •Has a very strong sense of entitlement, e.g., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
    •Is exploitative of others, e.g., takes advantage of others to achieve his own ends
    •Lacks empathy, e.g., is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
    •Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him
    •Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

    It doesn’t say anything about hearing loss, but I am sure he thinks he won’t hear the force of whats to come, coming.

    Never mind us rural people are very sensitive apparently and we can hear it coming.
