Research Breakthrough: Why Pulsing, Thumping Wind Turbine Noise Is So Annoying

  Explaining wind turbine noise to someone who’s never lived through it, is like explaining a migraine to someone who’s never had a headache. Measuring, quantifying and objectively describing it is no picnic, either. While the wind industry’s pet acoustic consultants stick to irrelevant measures such as the dB(A) weighting (that removes and therefore fails […]

‘Green’ Energy Guinea Pigs: Why Wind Turbine Noise Victims Suffer Sleep Deprivation & Worse

The German government got caught destroying data showing residents exposed to dangerous levels of wind turbine infrasound. In the USA, wind farm neighbours are exposed to precisely the same soul-destroying cacophony; a mix of thumping, pulsing (‘amplitude modulated’) low-frequency noise and infrasound. Evidence proving the unnecessary harm done to wind farm neighbours by wind turbine […]

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 […]

‘Green’ Hypocrites Want Industrial Wind Turbines in YOUR Backyard, But Never in Theirs

The green is always ready to spear hundreds of giant 240m (787ft) industrial wind turbines – into your backyard, but goes nuts if the ‘favour’ might be returned. Destroying your patch of paradise is a sacrifice that he is always willing to make. When former Greens leader, Dr Bob Brown started railing about the prospect […]

Sick Again: Wind Turbine Infrasound Delivers Daily Torment to Wind Farm Neighbours

The wind industry doesn’t simply cause grid and power market chaos, it’s a guaranteed community wrecker, too. 300 tonne monsters set on 100 metre towers with 50-60 m blades (the outer tips of which are travelling at over 350 Kph) deliver a thumping, pulsing cacophony of low-frequency noise and infrasound, that drives neighbours nuts or […]

Menace to Society: Costly, Chaotic Wind Power Delivers Nothing But Community Division & Bird & Bat Carnage

Anyone looking for reasons to hate wind power, is spoiled for choice. Heavily subsidised, chaotically intermittent and an environmental nightmare, there’s a veritable smorgasbord of arguments against returning to the Dark Ages. A time when daily life was dictated by the seasons and the weather. The reason that human beings developed, harnessed and perfected thermal […]

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 […]
