Institutional Malice: Wind Farm Victims’ Government Endorsed Suffering Continues With Greg Hunt’s Knowledge

Greg Hunt: a first rate, third rate man…


The number of Liberal (Australia’s once small-government, conservative, business and family friendly) Party MPs that hold a bizarre affection for these things can be tallied up on one hand.

The Liberal’s King of the Wind Worship Cult is the hapless Environment Minister, young Gregory Hunt. Hunt’s office is headed up by wind industry plant, Patrick Gibbons – who, along with his best mate, Ken McAlpine are responsible for cooking up the great wind power fraud in Australia.

At the time, they were staffers in the office of Victorian Labor Minister, Theo Theophanous, who with his brother, Andrew added more than a little ‘colour’ to politics.

In a cosier than cosy turn of events, Gibbons runs Hunt’s office; and McAlpine is now Vestas’ top media manipulator in Oz. How convenient!

Hunt and his office are fully aware of the life-destroying consequences foisted upon the hundreds of unfortunates stuck with these things by their wind industry benefactors. Hard-working rural people, ground down by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound – delivered in merciless, daily onslaughts, at places like Cape Bridgewater, Waubra and Macarthur in Victoria, Gullen Range and Cullerin in NSW, Windy Hill in QLD and Waterloo and Jamestown in SA.

Hunt and his cohorts are always quick to defend their paymasters; jumping on any suggestion that their beloved ‘eco-friendlies’ could harm so much as a fly.

However, try as they might, facts have an uncanny ability of bubbling to the surface; and, once there, ignorance of them is no defence.

When political history is drawn, and the legacies of those involved are measured up, it’s often what the protagonists didn’t do that stains their scorecard, rather than what they did.

For those responsible for enabling the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time – like Greg Hunt – it will be the fact that they knew full well that their favourite renewable rort caused wholly unnecessary misery to courageous, magnificent and stoic Australian women like Sonia Trist, Jan Hetherington and Annie Gardner:

Three Magnificent Women Take On Australia’s Monstrous Wind Power Outfits & their Pathetic Political Backers

Sonia Trist’s endless suffering is to Greg Hunt’s shame.


That our political betters are fully aware of wholly unnecessary suffering is a matter of no doubt.

You see, people like Greg Hunt and others, with full responsibility for the policies that saw thousands of these things speared into backyards across the country – driving people to the edge of sanity in their own homes; or driving them out of them altogether – get swamped with emails from their victims on a daily basis.

Just like this tragic tale laid out by Jan Hetherington from Macarthur in western Victoria.

But, before you confront what Jan has to deal with, night after punishing night (and it is confronting), take note of the who’s who list of recipients – a group that can never say that they didn’t know.

Subject: my 89th formal complaint re-Macarthur wind farm.

Dear Commissioner Dyer, and AGL,

As you have been made aware, from our meeting with you in December, 2015, I am now “sensitised” by the hammering from the excessive pulsating infrasound, low frequency noise and vibration, that saturates my home day in and day out, emitted by the 140, 3MW turbines at the Macarthur wind facility.

I told you about the problem I had, when I was a patient in the newly built Western Private Hospital in Melbourne, in 2015, where I experienced the same symptoms from infrasound as I experience at home, and independent acoustician Les Huson tested my hospital room and positively identified and recorded infrasound in that room.

Not only am I still being hammered by this “noise” as I go about my daily routine at home, but I recently visited Portland on the 6th and 7th and 12th and 13th January 2016, to attend the Cruise ship markets to showcase my glassware.

Each visit I stayed overnight in Portland with a friend, and to my horror, I experienced the same symptoms that I experience at home, from the low frequency and infrasound.

There are wind turbines on the edge of the township of Portland at Cape Nelson, and Cape Bridgewater.

I experienced symptoms of sleep deprivation, palpitations, anxiety, ears aching and ringing, head-pressure and aching on the back of my head and the top of my jaws. I could hear the low droning noise of the turbines during the night.

These are the same symptoms I experience at home, living near the Macarthur wind facility.

At the market on the foreshore during the day, I kept experiencing “whacks” to my head, as if someone had hit me on the back of my head. These “whacks” would give me a jolt and they hurt.

This excessive, pulsing infrasound, low frequency noise and vibration is a REAL problem, and I hope you have started your investigation into this REAL problem.

We cannot be expected to live our lives like this anymore.

I cannot be expected to be fearful of travelling to other places and experience the same dreadful symptoms that I experience at home.

This is “3rd world” stuff, and surely we’re better than that, we should be able to look after each and every one of our citizens, equally and without bias.

I pay my taxes and I expect something in return.

I expect to be treated with respect and compassion regarding this wind farm problem and not live in fear for my health and safety and wellbeing.

It’s about time politicians stopped playing politics and the popularity stakes and DO something about this wind farm problem.

I would like confirmation and receipt of this formal complaint please.

  1. Keith Staff says:

    Ignoring the known problems can be regarded in legal terms as ‘wilful ignorance ‘ and is no longer an option for the likes of young G Hunt and the left / green mob who intend to destroy Australia’s economy.

  2. Jackie Rovensky says:

    Tomorrow is Australia Day, a day we are meant to be thankful for a Nation which looks after its own, where it actually is a Nation divided, churned up, and spat out by Industrial Wind Energy companies and their minions.
    Tomorrow is not a day for celebration at a BBQ in the back yard with family and friends for those suffering onslaught on and assault against their very being, by Man Made Industrial Machinery sanctioned by our Governments at every level and championed by those who do and should know better.
    Tomorrow should we accept glib words spoken about how wonderful this nation is, while we and every politician knows Government sanctioned harm is being perpetrated on people who cry out for help and receive in return meaningless words. Should we continue to hand our sovereignty to people willing to do harm for their own profit.


    Imposing in there hundreds,
    Such an army on display,
    Those alien grey metal monsters
    I saw while on my way.
    Aliens on our shores have landed,
    So tall, backs straight and true,
    At night they watch through flashing eyes
    Of red, at me and you.

    Some have scaled the mountains,
    Others near schools and homes,
    Of one thing I am certain,
    Those aliens have no souls.
    No “whispering” from their ranks at all,
    An unearthly sound they make,
    It envelops each and everyone,
    No more can humans take.

    Three giant arms revolving,
    Enveloping all around,
    They’re here to ‘save the planet’,
    The biggest “con” I have found.
    Such hideous tall grey monsters,
    Invade green and pleasant lands,
    To stay for generations,
    Unless the people make a stand.

    These aliens feed on power and wind,
    Without either, they will die,
    They’re NOT environmental friendly,
    They’re for profit, (at a cost), that’s WHY.

  4. ANZACS in the First World War.

    A hundred years ago this year
    The Australians joined in that first World War.
    For all in this “Mother Country” of theirs
    They did their Duty for all on these shores.
    ANZAC Day, the Twenty-fifth of April,
    For all Australians their important “National Day”
    It is the Anniversary of this first Military Action,
    That Australians and New Zealanders remember in their Way.

    The “Mother Country” was in trouble
    It needed all the help that it could get,
    Those true Commonwealth friends heard the call,
    And those real friends we will never forget.
    Our Commonwealth friends that paid the ultimate price,
    For from Australia and New Zealand they came,
    Proudly known to us as the ANZACS,
    For they too, all cared, just the same.

    Most families here in the United Kingdom.
    Remember those ANZACS that came from afar,
    Yet have only now old sepia Photo’s to look at,
    For so many never came back from that war.
    The trenches where they lived out their lives,
    The dirt, the rain, and the mud,
    The shells constantly rained on them,
    No shelter to run to, even if they could.

    Not one person who survived that war,
    Could speak without shedding a tear,
    For they left relatives and friends behind them,
    Such was that terrible futile war.
    That war took around 60.000 of their lives,
    Such young lives so sadly in that war, was lost,
    Many with terrible injuries worked no more,
    Such loss of life, all at a terrible cost.

    Many “brothers” went together in that war,
    Yet not all from that war came back,
    Many paid the ultimate price,
    Yet for courage, not one of them lacked.
    At “Courtney’s Post” the Turks entered those trenches,
    But one Lance ‘Corporal Albert Jacka’ with others
    Drove them out again and was the first Australian
    To win the Victoria Cross for his own Australian Brothers.

    Never will the people of the Mother Country
    Forget the sacrifice the ANZACS made without fuss,
    Although those TWO Commonwealth Countries,
    Are on the other side of the World to us.
    Yet are nearer to us in thought, word and deed,
    True friends, so close, strong and true,
    They speak the same language, though differently,
    Staunch allies, steadfast, reliable, far better than anyone in that blesséd EU.

  5. No Turbines says:

    And once sensitised to low frequency noise there is no going back. It is not harm that can be simply “undone” – moving away will no longer “solve” the problem. This shouldn’t happen in the first place. The NHMRC-funded research needs to start with affected residents FIRST, not study unexposed residents under laboratory conditions.

  6. Terry Conn says:

    What is happening to Jan Hetherington and many others is ‘assault occasioning actually bodily harm’ in perpetuity. Those allowing this to continue are guilty of a crime. I suggest Ms. Hetherington commence private prosecution, proceeding against the owners of the wind farm and against the public officials that have approved the wind farm and those that have empowered it, such as Greg Hunt.

  7. The nicest words I could say about Greg Hunt is that he lives in his own little world – blinded by the Green Religion utopia of wind turbine preeminence and predominance – and seems to think that issues with wind turbines are limited to “views expressed by particular individuals”.
