Settling Up: Irish Wind Farm Operator Pays Three Children €225,000 Compensation For Suffering Caused by Turbine Noise

Wind developers face liability in the millions for the nuisance caused by unrelenting, turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound. Litigation is where the rubber hits the road: myths get replaced with facts; evidence overtakes spin and propaganda. Court rooms (and where they determine the facts, juries) strike fear into the (ordinarily icy) hearts of those […]

Rare Birds: Court Scotches Wind Farm Proposal to Prevent Inevitable Bird Slaughter

Courts that aren’t biased in favour of the wind industry are rare birds, indeed. Slowly but surely, however, the law is catching up with the scope and scale of the environmental and societal harm caused whenever these things get speared into rural communities, farmland and forests. Ireland is no exception. The Emerald Isle has been […]

Government’s Wind Industry Protection Racket: Wind Farm Noise ‘Rules’ A Sick Joke

Around the world, pliant governments allowed the wind industry to create utterly meaningless wind turbine noise ‘rules’ that allow wind power outfits to get away with murder.

Busted: Irish Wind Project Slammed For Breaching EU Environmental Directives

It’s a rare and beautiful thing when wind power outfits have their feet held to the fire. Writing their own set of rules and riding roughshod over locals has been the standard mode of operation for the wind industry, from the get go. STT recently reported on the Irish government’s very own turbine troubles: it […]

Irish Government Slammed with €5m Fine Over Wind Farm’s Environmental Disaster

Getting into bed with wind developers is never going to end well. For its troubles, the Irish government has just been whacked with a €5m fine for failing to enforce its own environmental standards at a wind farm near Derrybrien, County Galway. During construction, the developer managed to wipeout half a mountain, sending a sea […]

Sick Again: Wind Turbine Infrasound Delivers Daily Torment to Wind Farm Neighbours

The wind industry doesn’t simply cause grid and power market chaos, it’s a guaranteed community wrecker, too. 300 tonne monsters set on 100 metre towers with 50-60 m blades (the outer tips of which are travelling at over 350 Kph) deliver a thumping, pulsing cacophony of low-frequency noise and infrasound, that drives neighbours nuts or […]
