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. The Guidelines – available here – have nominated exposure to wind turbine noise as “More than a nuisance” it’s “a health risk – contributing to cardiovascular diseases, for example”: Wind Industry Panics as Class Actions Loom: […]

Wind Industry Panics as Class Actions Loom: WHO Finds Wind Turbine Noise Harmful to Health

It’s no mystery to those forced to live next to wind turbines that the incessant low-frequency noise they generate is seriously harmful to health. When humans set out to torture each other, sleep deprivation is usually top of the list. The wind industry has been doing just that, with impunity, for the best part of […]

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). We’ve also reported on Barry Funfar, a former […]

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, […]

Wind Turbine Noise & Vibration Causing Harm to Humans & Animals Alike

For those unfortunates forced to live with incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound, the cause of the sleep deprivation they suffer is no mystery. Moreover, a menagerie of domestic and wild animals stuck next to wind turbines suffer similar effects, including well-documented increases in the stress hormone cortisol (see our post here). Dr Mariana […]

Wealth of Scientific Evidence Shows Wind Turbine Noise Wrecks Sleep & Health

The evidence proving the unnecessary damage done to wind farm neighbours by the noise generated by giant industrial wind turbines is mounting by the day: Germany’s Max Planck Institute has identified sub-audible infrasound as the cause of stress, sleep disruption and more (see our post here); and a Swedish group have shown that it’s the […]

Top Sleep Specialist Slams ‘Nocebo’ Nonsense: Wind Turbine Noise Obvious Cause of Sleep Deprivation

Dr Wayne Spring is a sleep specialist with a lifetime’s experience of dealing with those suffering from sleep deprivation from all manner of causes. Recently, Dr Spring went into print, slamming those from the wind-cult who spend their time deriding the wind industry’s victims, rather than listening. One of its victims, who will never be […]
