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).

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, […]

The Monstrous ‘Ethics’ of the Wind Industry’s Acoustic Consultants

The acoustic consultants who have made $millions from writing utterly irrelevant noise ‘rules’ and defending them in front of planning courts and panels will never be accused of acting ethically. Their clients demand compliance reports that are made-to-measure, and they are happy to oblige, by either causing data to disappear or simply changing the numbers […]

Tasmanian Wombats Suffering from Wind Turbine Noise & Vibration

For that purpose, in Australia, the wind industry enlisted a former tobacco advertising guru, who peddles a theory called ‘nocebo’, […]

How ‘Green’ is Wind Power: Offshore Wind Farms Killing Whales

*** Energy generation systems of all descriptions take their toll, but only one of them claims moral superiority over all others. That increasingly tenuous claim rests on the ‘we’re saving the planet’ mantra – chanted by the wind cult around the Globe. Not for the first time, and not for the last time, wind turbine noise […]

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 […]

Undeniable Proof: Wind Turbine Noise Causes Serious Adverse Health Effects

A couple of years back, STT produced a timeline which highlighted how the wind industry and its pet acoustic consultants managed to set up ‘rules’ which have no relevance to the noise impacts experienced by wind farm neighbours and under which wind power outfits could ride roughshod over rural communities with complete impunity. That post […]
