US Courts Ordering Wind Power Operators to Buy Out Noise-Affected Neighbours at Market Rates

Life next to industrial wind turbines is a living hell for all 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.

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.

He’s the handsome devil […]

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 […]

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).

  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 […]
