AMA statement on wind farm – A need for an official enquiry into corruption

Dear Prime Minister,

Firstly I thank you for showing the care and concern for rural Australia by recently announcing a study into wind farms and health impacts – a position clearly mandated by the research gaps identified by the recent NHMRC Draft Information Paper: Evidence on Wind Farms and Human Health.

I am writing to you to bring to your attention two documents that unfortunately hint of widespread collusion between the wind industry and members of the medical profession: and

Both AMA position statements reflect an abstract position that does not examine reality. The authors make it clear that they are in total sync with the opinions and “research” of Professor Simon Chapman of Sydney University, but ignore significant peer reviewed published literature, the abundance of anecdotal reports of harm to human and animal health and the ongoing litany of controversy that continues unabated.

Should any medical practitioner take the AMA position statement seriously and try implementing its recommendation, they will have to show disregard for clinical observation, tell any of their patients living around wind farms and complaining of wind turbine related symptoms that they are victims of scaremongering, and perhaps report the incident to authorities for action. It seems that the AMA perceives information and open discussion as a threat to the mental wellbeing of the modern Australian. The prime target of the AMA appears to be one of its own: Sarah Laurie, the CEO of the Waubra Foundation.

I feel enough is enough. The blind eco-fascist fanaticism displayed by many is ever evident. The colours of corruption, lunacy and patent stupidity are becoming apparent amongst the highest echelons of academia and professionals.

The wind industry appears to be well aware that these large pieces of mega machinery are prime and unique sources of infrasound and low frequency noise – they are also atmospheric air blenders, sources of turbulence and disruption to local microclimates.

The harm wind turbines can cause has been described by NASA scientists in the 1980’s. The response by Sarah Laurie to the AMA is very comprehensive and makes the case clear:

I urge you to consider calling for a Royal Commission (or at the least, some form of Parliamentary inquiry) into why we are so painfully rediscovering what was evident back in the 1980s. As a result, billions of dollars have been wasted; community after community is being divided, turned upside down and subjected to the same sonic torture reported elsewhere. Some of the least fortunate rural residents have spent almost two decades of their lives campaigning. And while all this is happening, government departments and authorities to date sit back like lame ducks, confused and disorientated while a few shrewd academics and professionals do their job to ensure confusion continues so that the wind industry may continue to proliferate.

STT says ‘Hats off’ George!

If you would like to have your say you can sign this petition organised by full-time wind warrior, Shellie Correia, (Mothers Against Wind Turbines) that calls for the AMA to withdraw its position statement and support the much needed research with modern turbines.

    George, well said and I support the petition. The Government has a responsibility to ensure the health of its citizens, the AMA is obviously not willing to conduct itself in an unbiased manner and as such is endangering the health of those they are meant to be protecting. They have a duty to do no harm, but are by this position statement only considering harm that could be done to the IWT industry, and ignoring the needs and health of the people of this country. Not all members of the AMA agree with their position statement, but if only one does that means someone will continue to suffer unacknowledged and untreated by someone who has not conducted their duties to the highest standard of professionalism. Every doctor whether they agree with the AMA or not must stand by their duty to do no harm and request the AMA to withdraw their ill advised Position Statement and publically request all their members to adhere to the Associations standard of doing no harm at all times, and to work in a highly professional manner and treat patients with empathy and respect without prejudice to personal beliefs and bias.

    Also, hopefully Tony Abbott and the Federal Government will quickly come to a decision to set up the independent research and funding needed that they have said they will have conducted.

    As well it is hoped they will quickly also stop the advance of more of these projects at least until the ramifications have been identified by independent research into all aspects of the industry.
    Corruption is a word which seems to be coming forward more and more as this industry spreads itself across our beautiful land – unabated.

  2. Prime Minister, Tony Abbott.

    It is time to put a stop to this wind turbine madness that has been forced on people and destroying their health. Hard working rural people who have no option but to live around these fans as this is their work place and home.

    The AMA and NHMRC are turning out to be grubs – as they have been bought off by the wind weasel goons. Why are they not standing up for the people who are getting driven mad by the infrasound and low frequency noise of these useless fans?
