Hidden Harm: How Wind Turbine Noise Permanently Damages Neighbours’ Long-Term Health

Giant industrial wind turbines deliver a cacophony of thumping, grinding low-frequency noise for those forced to live with it. Anyone claiming that it’s not a miserable daily torment hasn’t lived with it, or they’re on the wind industry payroll. A couple of years back, STT produced a timeline which highlighted how the wind industry and […]

Industrial Noise Overload: What Makes Wind Turbine Noise So Soul Destroying

For those unfortunates forced to live with incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound, the cause of their inability to sleep is no mystery. For a taste of what life with these things is really like, why not start with Clive and Trina Gare (South Australian farmers paid $200,000 per year to host 19 2MW […]

Heartless: Wind Industry Covers Up Health Effects Caused by Low-Frequency Turbine Noise

A couple of years back, STT produced a timeline which highlighted how the wind industry and its pet acoustic consultants managed to set up ‘rules’ which have no relevance to the noise impacts experienced by wind farm neighbours and under which wind power outfits could ride roughshod over rural communities with complete impunity. That post […]

Justice Prevails: Wind Developers Charged Over Water Wells Contaminated with Toxic Sludge

Ontario’s farmers, furious about the toxic sludge coming out of their wells, have finally got the wind power outfits causing it charged with a raft of offences under the Environment Protection Act. 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 […]

Supreme Ignorance: Bernie Sanders Mocks Wind Turbine Noise Victims’ Daily Suffering

  Trying to explain life with wind turbine noise to the uninitiated is like trying to explain a migraine to someone that’s never had a headache. Presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders is yet another loony from the left with his own worldview on what is, for those forced to suffer it, a very real form of […]

Highland Victory: Court Finds Insidious Wind Turbine Noise ‘Jet-Like’ & Orders Wind Farm Shutdown

  Driving neighbours nuts with incessant wind turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound 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. Stuartfield couple win battle against […]

Noise Matters: Why Wind Turbine Noise Drives Wind Farm Neighbours Nuts

Life next to industrial wind turbines is a living hell for far too many rural residents. Practically incessant turbine-generated low-frequency noise and infra-sound drives neighbours nuts, preventing them from sleeping in – and otherwise enjoying the comforts of – their very own homes. An Australian Court found long-term exposure to wind turbine noise to be […]

Silent Killer: Why Wind Turbine Infrasound Causes Serious Health Problems for Wind Farm Neighbours

  Evidence proving the unnecessary harm done to wind farm neighbours by wind turbine noise mounts 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 nature of low-frequency wind turbine noise […]

WHO Says Wind Turbines a ‘Health Hazard’? The World Health Organization, That’s WHO

The recent release of the World Health Organization’s Environmental Noise Guidelines for Europe has the wind industry in a flat panic. The Guidelines – available here – have nominated exposure to wind turbine noise as “More than a nuisance” it’s “a health risk – contributing to cardiovascular diseases, for example”: Wind Industry Panics as Class Actions Loom: […]

Renewable Energy’s Dirty Dozen: 12 Reasons Why Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar Power Make No Sense

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes. For wind and sun worshippers, disastrous examples like South Australia – where mass blackouts and load shedding have become the new normal – require not just practiced delusion but a form of self-flagellating stoicism, as well. Oh, […]
