Dr Alan Watts – pure & simple: “it’s Fraud”


Here’s STT Champion, Alan Jones talking with Dr Alan Watts about the great Australian wind power fraud.

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.

The first piece has AJ ripping the fraud to pieces all by himself (7.08):

In this segment AJ is joined by STT Champion, Dr Alan Watts OAM – no punches are pulled (10.27):

Dr Watts made the following obvious points (points repeatedly ignored by those we pay to serve and protect us):

  • the government exists to  ensure safe food, clean water and the health of a nation – fundamentals that are being ignored
  • wind energy is a fraud on a proportion that is beyond belief
  • sleep deprivation caused by turbine generated infrasound and low frequency noise is a serious public health issue
  • legal decision at Falmouth found wind turbines caused ‘irreparable damage to people’s health’
  • it’s nothing but ideology that drives wind energy
  • NSW planning and health departments are deliberately withholding key documents about turbine noise and its impacts on sleep and health – documents that should be disclosed to the public.

    Geoff Leventhall (who was mentioned in the interview by Dr Alan Watts) also conducted a literature review for DEFRA (Dept of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs in the UK) in 2003.

    Leventhall made a couple of passing comments on the low frequency research conducted by NASA in his paper, yet he never reviewed any of the research conducted from 1979 into the 1990’s.

    Had he done so, the British govt (equally as blatantly greenwashed as the Australian govt), would have known about the meticulous pioneering research conducted by Dr N D Kelley, Willshire, Hubbard and others in the 1980s.

    This research, as has been pointed out by contributors to your radio program, proved that low frequency noise (LFN) and infrasound (ILFN) DOES damage people’s health, and that health problems worsen with cumulative exposure. The research by Willshire (1985) also proved that ILFN can easily travel 10km with little loss in power.

    The British govt still stands by the 2003 literature review by Leventhall as evidence for its stance that wind farm LFN is not injurious to human health (I have a letter from a govt minister, dated Feb 2013, stating the govt’s stance).

    It’s obvious to me that the British govt and windustry brown nosers (as in Australia & elsewhere) have so much credibility to lose they are lying through their teeth to protect their shattered reputations – it’s a case of the “when you’re in a hole, keep digging” mentality. They know they’ve lost the arguments, yet they’re defending their positions because they will have no livelihood if they come out & admit their mistakes.

    The wind industry brown nosers have so much to lose that they continue to screw the rural population and subject them to intolerable TORTURE (against the UN convention of human rights) to protect their own positions.

    The only way I can see to stop the gargantuan fraud and to stop the govts commiting what is tantamount to “treason” (I do not use this term lightly) against its own people is to demand written guarantees from developers, acousticians, brown nosing medical “experts”, planners and inspectors that wind farms will not harm people’s health.

    Seeking damages from the fraud facilitators and perpetrators in court is the only course of action I can envisage that would stand a chance of success – but it will be a dirty battle.

    Although I’m not a qualified acoustician, I have learned a lot on the subject over the last 7 years. It was 7 years ago when my wife first started hearing unexplained LFN in our home. This coincided with a 16 turbine wind farm being built 40km from our home.

    Since then more turbines have been built closer to our home, more are under construction, and yet more have recently been granted planning permission.

    I watched my wife be ill for over a month last summer, with sumptoms identical to those suffering from cumulative low frequency. The symptoms started several days into a spell of stable non turbulent atmosphere associated with a high pressure system, and progressively worsened over time. She was hearing LFN constantly and noticeably during this period. She was even forced to camp outdoors to reduce exposure to LFN.

    She only started regaining her health a few days after the weather broke and the LFN diminished in intensity significantly. It took her about 10-14 day to regain her health.

    This she experienced with the nearest wind farm 13 km from our home. We don’t know how much longer we’ll be able to live in our quiet rural home once the other wind turbines are up and running, with a good number being even closer to our home. Where can we go to get away from the LFN? Nowhere in Wales, except perhaps if we moved into one of the big cities.

    I can’t stand by and do nothing after seeing what can happen to my wife when exposed to excessive LFN. She can easily hear LFN indoors at distances of at least 50 km.

  2. From the point of view of economic theory, I have always argued that wind is sub-optimal as a source of industrial-scale electricity, but I am not sure that wind is an out-and-out fraud. I suspect that a small amount of it might make sense, and not just at Tierra del Fuego. I also don’t think that it should be abandoned as a topic for research. Inexpensive research of course!

    I mean, let’s face the facts of life. I taught or did research at 5 Australian universities, and I still smile when I tell people about the richness of Australia, among which is the location of that country. But the World population is (or will be) increasing by almost a billion people a decade, and eventually that is going to create a shortage of most energy resources. Most resources could include the coal and uranium of Australia.

    In the case of my own country (USA), if asked, I say that the less oil and gas exported the better – if not now, then at some point in the future. (I would also like to see a healthy export tax put on the electricity in Sweden, since I happen to live in this country, and I am a victim of that export).

    These are things that our political masters should keep in mind (assuming that they don’t have something more important than the energy supply to think about).

  3. The similarities with the tobacco industries years of denial and suppression of scientific proof are obvious. A class action against the wind farm owners/operators, the Federal and State gov’t departments that are meant to be protecting the public and setting the standards would surely, given the scientific evidence be successful. The shock waves would bring this madness to an abrupt halt and at least give the victims some compensation.

  4. After publicly lynching the first offending politician…..the rest tend to fall in line! LOL!

  5. Terry Conn says:

    Dr. Alan Watts has done an incredible service to the people of NSW and Australia in saying so succinctly the truth about those in power and the reality of wind farms. The problem is, as he says, no one who is in a position of power is listening or could care less. What do we do to get those people in power to act on what Alan says?
