No Retreat & No Surrender: Wind Industry’s Victims Left Furious at Government Inaction

  What the wind industry hates most are facts. Troublesome facts like the health effects caused to neighbours by wind turbine noise. In Australia, the wind industry has the so-called ‘Wind Farm Commissioner’ to help bury them. Andrew Dyer has done everything the wind industry has asked him to do; principally his ‘task’ involves ignoring […]

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

AGL’s Macarthur Wind Farm Victims Join the Call for an Immediate Moratorium

In last night’s post, we covered the call by a growing band of Australian Senators for an immediate moratorium on the construction of any more of these things – unless and until they’ve been exonerated, beyond all reasonable doubt, as the cause of a raft of noise related health effects suffered by wind farm neighbours; […]

Wind Farms: Crushing Property Rights & Values Everywhere

**** In Australia, hundreds of law-abiding rural citizens have had their valuable property rights permanently destroyed by wind power outfits – with knowing assistance from all levels of government. Property values for those unfortunate enough to be situated anywhere near these things, are a mere fraction of what they would otherwise be; and even the […]

Wind Turbine Infrasound: an “Acoustic Trespasser”

**** Despite its best efforts to bury the adverse health impacts of incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound, as a result of lots of continuous complaints from neighbours, and the dedicated work of a few ethical acousticians out to help them, the wind industry has lately been called to account. It’s taken time – […]
