Falmouth’s Two Turbine Wind Farm Fiasco: Shutdown Order Leaves Town $7,000,000 in Debt

Take a small Massachusetts township, add two wind turbines, mix with hubris and arrogance and you have a perfect recipe for disaster.

The Finns are renowned for their stoicism, but grinding, pulsing wind turbine noise is too much for any sentient being, even the Finnish. The evidence proving the unnecessary damage done to wind farm neighbours by the noise generated by giant industrial wind turbines is mounting by the day: Germany’s Max Planck Institute has identified sub-audible […]

Pulsing Punishment: Wind Turbine Infrasound Delivers Perpetual Torment for Neighbours

The evidence proving the unnecessary damage done to wind farm neighbours by the noise generated by giant industrial wind turbines is mounting by the day: Germany’s Max Planck Institute has identified sub-audible infrasound as the cause of stress, sleep disruption and more (see our post here); and a Swedish group have shown that it’s the pulsing […]
