Ontario Fights Back: Farmers Hammered by Wind Turbine Noise Prosecute Environment Minister

Over the last decade, the wind industry has ridden roughshod over the rights of law-abiding citizens to live peacefully in their very own homes. The battle that’s followed proves that the value of any right is determined by the beneficiaries’ determination to fight for it. Giant industrial wind turbines deliver a cacophony of pulsing, practically […]

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 […]

Neighbourhood Nuisance: UK Wind Farm Operator Fined £51,000 For Noisy Turbine

Driving neighbours nuts with incessant wind turbine generated low-frequency noise and infra-sound is what the wind industry does best. Wind power outfits literally create headaches wherever they ply their subsidy-soaked trade. But, increasingly, people and communities with the temerity to stand up for their rights are doing just that. And winning. Fined £51,000 … for […]

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 […]

Wind Turbine Noise Makes Life a Living Hell for Neighbours: Michigan Farmers Driven From Homes

  Wherever the wind industry expands, so too a visceral hatred among those forced to suffer incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infra-sound. No manner of cynical finessing can excuse what’s done by this subsidy-soaked so-called ‘industry’. Turning peaceful and idyllic rural communities into industrial wastelands sticks in the craw of even life’s most grizzled […]
