Steve Cooper on Alan Jone’s Show

One of – if not – Australia’s leading, truly independent Acoustic Expert, Steve Cooper was interviewed by Alan Jones this morning.

Alan has a little radio show that more than just a few Australians tune into each morning. Syndicated through over 77 Stations and with close to 2 million listeners Countrywide – AJ as he’s known – is one of those people that leads the political charge on many issues that really affect ordinary Australians and which the rest of the press ignore.

For a truly brilliant interview click on the player below or watch the movie (non-flash devices).



Ian “Enron” Macfarlane copped an almighty Alan Jones “shellacking” in that interview, but STT is willing to give the man a chance.

After all he made his solemn promise to a dying man – Alby Schultz – a solemn promise to implement the legislative amendments needed to get the health research done that the Senate unanimously called for in July 2012.

STT hasn’t had the misfortune to meet someone low enough to renege on a promise to a dying man, so we simply can’t imagine Ian being in that category.  Although we have likened him to Robinson Crusoe – due to his “lone-wolf” support for the great wind power fraud.


Fresh off the Island, Ian contemplates joining a team raring to put
Australia back on track – starting with scrapping the RET & the REC.

STT hears that Ian was none too pleased that we described him as a “policy lightweight”.

Well, Ian – first thing Monday morning, you’ll be part of a new government on which great hopes are pinned.  And we aren’t referring to the hopes of your mates at Infigen.

We are talking about the people that will vote for a Coalition government.  You will be just one of a hundred or so that will be paid handsomely by us to represent the interests of Australian citizens – NOT the interests of morally (and soon to be financially) bankrupt outfits like Infigen (aka Babcock & Brown).

On Saturday, the majority of the Australian voting public will be hoping to IMPROVE the standard of governance – not to simply replace a bunch of bickering, incompetents with a handful of heartless, kleptocrats – keen to look after their “mates” and set themselves up for a life after politics, at the misery and expense of hard working, taxpaying people.  That couldn’t be you, could it Ian?

Ian, here’s your chance to man-up and show the Country – and especially Country people (never forget where you came from and who voted to put you where you are) – that you are above and beyond reproach – and that you are, in fact, a policy heavyweight.

We’ll be only too glad to report on your policy prowess as you put it into action for the benefit of rural communities and Australian power consumers.

Do it for your Country and do it for Alby. His political legacy warrants nothing less.

    It is great to see Steve Cooper point out that the low frequency report based on G weighting by the Clean Energy Council put forward at the Senate inquiry at Melbourne is useless and the same goes for the use of L90, which was used at the Waubra Wind Farm. The L90 is different to the Leq used in the International testing of the turbines used at Waubra.

    The results of testing in front and the side of turbines is consistent with what I have experienced hearing at nearby turbines. This can be explained by the undisturbed air, before entering the turbine and the sound sliding off the end of the blades at the side. I believe the testing should be at least 10 rotor diameters away from the turbines, so the wake and turbulence has a chance to settle to get a reliable assessment of sound emissions. This is because research shows that the worst affected people are about 1.4 km away from the turbines and that the Waubra Wind Farm Engineer stated to me that it takes upto 2 km for the sound to come down to our house from the turbines.

    I am very concerned about the progress of assessing Special Audible Characteristic (SACs) at Waubra’s noncompliant wind farm. Special Audible Characteristics is a sound that is annoying, like me talking loud when you are trying to listen to someone else talk. The frequency of words that I express arrive at your ears at say 4 hz (ie 4 words a second) but the frequencies in the noise I make when I am talking may be in the range of 20 to 1000 hz. However, if I am passionate about what I am saying, then the sound pressure level may very between 40 and 70 decibels db.

    I also would have liked to have seen some sonograms to demonstrate the air/sound pressure waves 1 km or so away from the turbines to indicate amplitude modulation [another SACs] of the sounds coming from the turbines. Please note these comments are based on the power point presentaton [a veiw of only, from the acoustic conference 28- 30 August 2013 by Steve].

    This wind energy thing is absolutely crazy. Every major country in the world is having this wind energy thing being shoved down our throats – why? It is a scam folks! Beware! It is out and out fraud upon the people!
    Now, let’s get back to the real problems – you want ‘health studies’, on the basis of some kind of ‘noise’? Nobody really understands what that is. And the powers that (shouldn’t) be will usurpt the health parameters to make the study useless and self-serving to their purposes. The studies will NOT address the real problems – which is a type of ‘noise’ which will not be recognized for what it really is. In geophysics, it is called SP, self polarization, but it is a derivative of SP that is the real culprit. Very few people in the tech world understand this adequately. But, it is this ‘derivative’ that is the true source of the health problems. The good news is that this can be countered effectively, I believe.

    Honesty is the one thing we need from our politicians and if a promise has been made to a very sick person one would hope it would be kept.
    Stephen Cooper has been doing what he does best – testing the acoustics of these things and he has found a problem. When will the Governments of this country accept the proven truth? Why are they continuing to allow its citizens to be placed in danger? They fight for the safety of others around the world – what about their own people?
    It’s a great idea to look after our environment for the future but it should not be at the destruction of it today.
    Alan Jones is doing a wonderful job of keeping the subject awake and open for discussion, when Governments would like to see any adverse discussion disappear.

  4. Reblogged this on Mothers Against Wind Turbines and commented:
    Aussies soon get the opportunity to replace their windpushing government, with an intelligent, sensible government.

  5. Thank god for people like STT, Alan Jones and Stephen Cooper, who are batting for those affected by the wind turbines. I get so wild when the pro wind bloggers virtually laugh at these people, they put Youtube comedy skits about the ‘nocebo’ effect on their FB pages, they still call us ‘NIMBY’s’, liars, unethical, (you all know who I mean) well, their day is coming very soon and when they are down, I might be one of the first to sink the boots in!


  6. Dear STT,

    Thanks for recognising the efforts of the faultless member for Hume, Mr Alby Schultz.

    As STT readers, I’m sure we all send our love and prayers to a genuine justice Warrior and a gentleman.

    Look after yourself and your beautiful wife, Alby. We know you’ll be back but in the mean time, we’ll honour your efforts and get this shit sorted in celebration of your courage, tenacity and faultless model. xxx

  7. I am very saddened to hear about the health of Alby Schultz. I wish he lives to see the end of this industry.
