Germany’s Wind Farm Noise Victims Detail Their Daily Misery

Noise induced insomnia: needs no translation.

One of the myths pedalled by Australia’s self-appointed wind farm noise, sleep and health ‘expert’ (a former tobacco advertising guru) is that the known and obvious adverse health impacts from incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound are a cooked-up “phenomenon”, exclusive to the English speaking world. Trouble with that little tale is that’s been scotched by the Danes:

Vestas’ Danish Victims Lay Out the FACTS

Denmark Calls Halt to More Wind Farm Harm

And the Germans:

German Medicos Demand Moratorium on New Wind Farms

And the Tawainese:

Winning Taiwanese Hearts and Minds?

And the Turks:

Turkish Court Shuts Down 50 Turbines: Yaylaköy Residents Delighted at 1st Chance to Sleep in Years

Now, back to Germany where – in the video below (it comes with English subtitles) – Heimke and Pieter Hogeveen lay bare their family’s daily despair at being unable to sleep in their very own home.

Ground down by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound, these people have constructed a ‘bedroom’ in their cellar in an attempt to escape their sonic torment; and sent their children to a boarding school in Denmark for the same reason. Clearly fighters, Hiemke and Pieter have enlisted two lawyers in an action against the wind power outfit responsible.

  1. Reblogged this on windfarmaction and commented:
    More and more Germany is exposed NOT to be the Nirvana of wind!

  2. I agree – Humans should come before machines. Just a pity the QLD government doesn’t share the same view. Wind turbines will win every time.

    The EHP ignored its own acoustic expert’s cautions about the draft wind farm code’s likely harm to human and animal health after Greg Chemello tells a Senate inquiry “we can’t say no to a wind farm.”
    Queensland. Beautiful one day, totally f@cked up the next.
