Wind Industry’s Propaganda King – Simon Chapman Forced to Apologise to Dr Sarah Laurie for False & Malicious Taunts

*** Australia is blessed with a former tobacco advertising guru who is paid a packet by wind power outfits – like near-bankrupt Infigen – to pedal a story that the adverse health impacts caused by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound (such as sleep deprivation) are the product of “scare-mongering” – which, on his […]

Annie strikes again

Annie and Gus Gardner are hard working rural folk who have shared their battles with the AGL wind factory us at our Wind Power Fraud Rally last year and in letters covered in our posts here, here, here, here, here and here. The outrage that stemmed from the Gardner’s reading of the AMA position paper on wind farms […]

In this episode Tim shares his watershed moment when he meets affected people and realises the extent of the suffering that can occur when industrial wind turbines are sited too close to peoples homes.

Vestas is deceiving the public when it portrays itself as an ethical and moral company

“Is it really good export policy to dispatch a man like McAlpine to run errands on behalf of Vestas?” Occupational medicine specialist Doctor Mauri Johansson gave the following speech at the general meeting of Vestas, a wind turbine manufacturer.

No amount of electricity generation is worth this

The following first appeared as a comment under the post Cape Bridgewater: Sonia. You say it so well dear lady. My own situation is so similar to yours here in Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA. I have abandoned my dream and it hurts every day, I live worse now than ever in my life at 57-years-old. We […]

The doctors, researchers and health practitioners worldwide who get it

An impressive number of health practitioners, researchers and acousticians around the world are now voicing their concern about the impact of wind turbines on people’s health. The list has been published by the Waubra Foundation, the European Platform Against Windfarms (EPAW) and the North American Platform Against Windfarms (NA-PAW). The latter two organisations represent more […]

Response #4 to Chapman’s “study”

Professor Simon Chapman thinks that wind farm neighbours are making themselves ill (“nocebo effect”) through fear or envy or prejudice (Goulburn Post, 22.3.13). On the contrary, if neighbours are kept awake at night by audible low frequency noise in their bedroom, that is an adverse health effect, and no further proof is needed. Regular sleep […]

Letter #1 re Simon Chapman’s “study”

From Chris Jelbart Simon Chapman (Think healthy on wind farms, Monday March 18th) is not a medical doctor, but a sociologist who has specialised in fighting tobacco. This is his area of expertise. He speaks out against people who feel genuinely ill and suffer genuine symptoms, and denigrates those who try to help through considered, […]

Chapman may still consider himself a scientist, but he certainly looks like an advocate to me

The following post first appeared on windfarmrealities.org by Wayne Gulden. Simon Chapman, a public-health professor in Australia, has long maintained that the health and annoyance issues from wind turbines that people complain about are the result of nocebo.  Recently he published a study that purports to conclusively demonstrate that those health complaints are not caused […]
