AGL’s Renewable Energy Future: Driving Wind Farm Neighbours From Their Homes Without Compensation

  Over the past couple of months, AGL has bombarded TV viewers with propaganda claiming that its push to wallow in the massive and endless subsidies ladled out to wind and solar power generators comes “with no compromises to you”. A more accurate way of putting it would be that AGL will make no compromise, […]

Needless Human Suffering the Price of Wind Industry Corruption

*** For far too many acoustic engineers ethics runs a poor second to pocketing fat piles of easy cash from the wind industry for knocking out noise reports that (always) show ‘compliance’ with the noise conditions of planning consents – even if that requires fabricating data – as occurred at the Waubra and Cape Bridgewater […]

Fraud in Falmouth MA – Town Relied on Acoustic Consultants’ Faked Vestas Wind Turbine Noise Report

There aren’t many certainties in life, save death and taxes. But STT is happy to add – without reservation – to that short-list, another: that you’ll never find the words ‘integrity’ and ‘wind industry’ coupling up in the same sentence. Lies, fraud and corruption are the norm; and that extends to the industry’s pet acoustic […]

Dr Robert McMurty tells Senate: ‘Annoyance’ caused by Wind Turbine Noise includes ‘Sleep disturbance’ & is Adverse to Health

**** The Senate Inquiry has had to wade through a fairly pungent cesspit of ‘material’ dropped on it by the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers. No doubt to their great relief (or, in the case of wind industry stooge, Anne Urquhart, infuriation) the Senators have heard from a raft of genuine and highly qualified […]

Farmer Knocks Back ‘Offers’ of $100,000 a Year to Host Turbines & Tells Senate: “These Things Shouldn’t Be In Anyone’s Backyard”

**** Remember all those glowing stories about wind power outfits being welcomed into rural communities with open arms? You know, tales about how farmers are dying to have turbines lined up all over their properties? How locals can’t wait to pick up some of the thousands of permanent, high paying jobs on offer? How developers […]

Dr Bruce Rapley tells Senate: Wind Farm Nocebo Story “Nefarious Pseudoscience” & an “Insult to Intelligence”

**** 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 […]
