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 […]

Wind Farm Shutdown Allows Neighbours to Sleep Comfortably for 1st Time in Years

As time goes by, the irrefutable evidence mounts that incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound is a hazard to human health; and no evidence is more compelling than the negative effect wind turbine noise and vibration has on the critical need for sleep. The World Health Organisation has viewed “noise-induced sleep disturbance … as […]

Illinois Appeals Board Slams 127 Turbine Wind Farm Proposal Due to Excess Noise Health Effects & Loss of Neighbours’ Property Values

**** It doesn’t usually take the law long to catch up with good old common sense, as this decision by Illinois’ Bureau County Zoning Board of Appeals attests. Zoning board denies wind turbines applications Bureau County Republican Barb Amrein 30 December 2015 Bureau County Zoning Board of Appeals finds application to build 127 industrial wind […]
