Government’s Wind Industry Protection Racket: Wind Farm Noise ‘Rules’ A Sick Joke

Around the world, pliant governments allowed the wind industry to create utterly meaningless wind turbine noise ‘rules’ that allow wind power outfits to get away with murder. Giant industrial wind turbines deliver a merciless, thumping, grinding cacophony of daily torment to families forced to live next to them. And if you think pocketing cash in […]

Vindicated: Supreme Court Slams Developer For Ignoring Wind Turbine Noise Effects on Neighbours

Call it the ‘luck of the Irish’. Over the last few months locals have racked up a string of victories against wind power outfits for all manner of sins, crimes and misdemeanours.

Residents Revolt: South Australia’s Wind Farm Planning Rules ‘Rotten to the Core’

  Like Germany, rural South Australia was quickly carpeted with a multitude of these things; like Germany its long-suffering rural residents have had enough noise torment to last a lifetime.

MP Demands Wind Farm Moratorium: Rigged & Pointless Noise Rules ‘Rotten to the Core’

WHO Says Wind Turbines a ‘Health Hazard’? The World Health Organization, That’s WHO

The recent release of the World Health Organization’s Environmental Noise Guidelines for Europe has the wind industry in a flat panic.

Corrupt Consultants Ensure Wind Power Capital, South Australia has World’s Worst Wind Turbine Noise ‘Rules’

Over the last decade, the wind industry has ridden roughshod over the rights of law-abiding citizens to live peacefully in their very own homes. The battle that’s followed proves that the value of any right is determined by the beneficiaries’ determination to fight for it. Giant industrial wind turbines deliver a cacophony of pulsing, practically […]

Why Pulsing Wind Turbine Noise Causes Nightmares For Neighbours

  Starting over 30 years ago, the wind industry established noise rules deliberately designed to allow it to operate with complete impunity, while punishing wind farm neighbours with incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound: Three Decades of Wind Industry Deception: A Chronology of a Global Conspiracy of Silence and Subterfuge In December last year, […]

Getting Away with Murder: How the Wind Industry Rigged Noise Rules Around the World

In our timeline post – Three Decades of Wind Industry Deception: A Chronology of a Global Conspiracy of Silence and Subterfuge – we covered the fact that – from 1995 – the wind industry drew together a hand-picked team with a mission to write noise rules with absolutely no relevance to wind turbine noise; and, […]

Scottish Council Demands Copy of Noise Report for Non-Compliant Wind Farm & Its Operator Predictably Runs for Cover

**** One of the slickest moves wind weasels ever made was to have their team write the so-called “wind farm noise guidelines” – which deliberately exclude all reference to the real bane of wind farm neighbours – incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound: Wind Turbine Infrasound: What Drives Wind Farm Neighbours to Despair Three […]

World First: Ontario Council Includes Infrasound in Wind Farm Noise Law

The most common source of complaint from those unfortunates forced to live next to wind farms is the incessant low-frequency noise and infrasound generated by giant industrial wind turbines: turning a quiet night in into an occasion of acoustic torture (see our post here); and destroying many a good night’s sleep (see our post here).
