Unnatural Environment: New University Study Nails Wind Turbine Noise Nuisance

The wind industry has been lying for years about the nature and effects of wind turbine noise and they’ve paid acoustic consultants a veritable fortune to do so, on their behalf. It’s criminal, to be sure, and at a government-backed, corporate scale. However, slowly but surely, ethical researchers and experts are building a body of […]

Unnecessary Night-time Nuisance: Why Wind Turbine Noise Is So Much More Annoying After Dark

Delivering a thumping, grinding, mechanical cacophony, industrial wind turbines drive neighbours nuts. But, as a recent study from Flinders University in South Australia has found, there’s a reason why wind turbine noise is so much worse after dark. The pulsing, thumping nature of wind turbine noise – which relates to blades passing the tower – […]

Loaded Dice: How The Wind Industry Rigged Noise ‘Rules’ So It Could Ruin Neighbours’ Lives

When it comes to the noise that drives neighbours nuts, wind power outfits get away with blue murder. And there’s a reason for that. Over the years, hundreds of our posts have covered the topic of the adverse health effects caused by turbine generated incessant low-frequency noise and infrasound; the woefully inadequate, indeed, utterly irrelevant […]

Jumbo Noise Problem: Africa’s Elephants Hate Thumping Droning Wind Turbine Noise

Thumping, grinding wind turbine noise has always been the elephant in the room for the wind industry. Now, it’s the elephants themselves who’ve signalled just how annoying low-frequency wind turbine noise is. Renowned for their acutely sensitive hearing in the lower frequency register, the long-distance communication between Africa’s elephants is being drowned out by an […]

No Place For Man or Beast: Irish Family Pockets €225,000 From Wind Power Outfit For Noise Torture

Wind developers face liability in the millions for the nuisance caused by unrelenting, turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound. Litigation is where the rubber hits the road: myths get replaced with facts; evidence overtakes spin and propaganda. Court rooms (and where they determine the facts, juries) strike fear into the (ordinarily icy) hearts of those […]

America’s Rural Communities Go On The Offensive Against Big Wind’s Turbine Onslaught

Nothing invokes rage and fury in rural communities like a wind farm comprising dozens and sometimes hundreds of 300 tonne, 200m high monsters. In Germany, locals expressed their opposition in no uncertain terms – voting 25 to 1 against a giant wind project proposed for their patch of paradise: Renewables ‘Transition’ Hits Roadblock: Germans Vote […]

Living Nightmare: The Daily Misery Caused to Neighbours By Industrial Wind Turbines

Anyone looking for reasons to hate wind power, is spoiled for choice. Heavily subsidised, chaotically intermittent and an environmental nightmare, there’s a veritable smorgasbord of arguments against returning to the Dark Ages. A time when daily life was dictated by the seasons and the weather. The reason that human beings developed, harnessed and perfected thermal […]
