Ontario’s Water Wars: Wind Turbine Construction Turns Underground Water to Toxic Sludge

Ontario’s farmers keep complaining about the toxic sludge coming out of their wells, while the wind power outfits that have obviously caused the damage, keep lying about it. Pile-driving and the excavations required for 400m³ of steel reinforced concrete for the hundreds of turbine bases across Chatham-Kent are the only new and intervening factor capable […]

Battlelines Drawn: Victoria’s Wind Power Push Meets Angry & Disciplined Opposition

It’s often forgotten that the diminutive David slew the gigantic Goliath. Discipline, nerve and strategic resolve is what wins battles. And in Western Victoria, there’s no bigger battle than that brewing between wind power outfits and local community defenders. One of the best of those is retired country lawyer, Tony Edney. He’s the handsome devil […]

Fact Factory: Smashing Big Wind Starts & Ends With Data & Detail

What the wind industry hates most are facts; facts about rocketing power prices, massive subsidies, chaotic intermittency, incessant noise and consequent harm to neighbour’s health, the destruction of birds and bats, the destruction of underground water supplies, turbines spontaneously combusting, disintegrating or throwing their blades to the four winds. We could go on. On this […]

German Researchers Target Effects of Wind Turbine Infrasound on the Heart

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 […]

Victims Vindicated: Wind Turbine Noise Exposure Proven ‘Pathway to Disease’

Last December, Australia’s Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) held that “noise annoyance” caused by wind turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound “is a plausible pathway to disease”, based on the “established association between noise annoyance and some diseases, including hypertension and cardiovascular disease, possibly mediated in part by disturbed sleep and/or psychological stress/distress.” The AAT also slammed […]

Ontario Resident’s Revolt: Wind Farm Neighbours Sue Government to Get Noise Rules Enforced

Corruption and the wind industry go hand in glove. From the outset it’s managed to infiltrate every level of government, using tactics that would make the most malign Mafiosi blush. Renowned for unauthorised facilitation payments (aka ‘bribes’), threats, bullying and aggressive, deep pocketing litigation in order to get its way, one of the key targets […]

Falmouth’s Victory: Noisy Community Destroying Wind Turbines to Be Demolished

Back in November 2013, we reported on the orders made by a Court in Falmouth, Massachusetts that pulled to a halt the operation of a couple of Vestas V82s that have been driving townspeople nuts, since they kicked into gear almost 7 years ago (see our post here). We’ve also reported on Barry Funfar, a former […]
