Victims: Carl and Sam Stepnell

STT would like you to meet Carl and Samantha Stepnell, who have long since left their home, which was 900m from the turbines at the Waubra Wind Farm. They have moved a 30 minute drive away for the sake of their health and sanity. Samantha was severely affected, as soon as the turbines started – although it took Carl 6 months or so before he began to feel the effects. He had headaches at first, then sleep deprivation, waking with chest pains and blood noses.  Although it is noisy in Ballarat (only a km from a freeway) they can at least sleep again and have some night-time reprieve from what ever it is that comes out of those turbines. In this video interview Carl talks about how it has been living and working next to the turbines (5.03). Another ABC story about the plight of the Stepnell family, and their contribution to the Senate Enquiry into Wind Farms, is available here.
