US Courts Ordering Wind Power Operators to Buy Out Noise-Affected Neighbours at Market Rates

Life next to industrial wind turbines is a living hell for all too many rural residents. Practically incessant turbine-generated low-frequency noise and infra-sound drives neighbours nuts, preventing them from sleeping in – and otherwise enjoying the comforts of – their very own homes. An Australian Court found long-term exposure to wind turbine noise to be […]

No Retreat & No Surrender: Wind Industry’s Victims Left Furious at Government Inaction

  What the wind industry hates most are facts. Troublesome facts like the health effects caused to neighbours by wind turbine noise. In Australia, the wind industry has the so-called ‘Wind Farm Commissioner’ to help bury them. Andrew Dyer has done everything the wind industry has asked him to do; principally his ‘task’ involves ignoring […]

Victims Vindicated: Wind Turbine Noise Exposure Proven ‘Pathway to Disease’

Last December, Australia’s Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) held that “noise annoyance” caused by wind turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound “is a plausible pathway to disease”, based on the “established association between noise annoyance and some diseases, including hypertension and cardiovascular disease, possibly mediated in part by disturbed sleep and/or psychological stress/distress.” The AAT also slammed […]

Wind Turbine Noise Makes Life a Living Hell for Neighbours: Michigan Farmers Driven From Homes

  Wherever the wind industry expands, so too a visceral hatred among those forced to suffer incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infra-sound. No manner of cynical finessing can excuse what’s done by this subsidy-soaked so-called ‘industry’. Turning peaceful and idyllic rural communities into industrial wastelands sticks in the craw of even life’s most grizzled […]

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 […]

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 […]

Kiwi Community Backlash Forces Wind Farm Shutdown & Gets All New Noise Rules

*** Kiwis fight. And we are not talking about the dowdy little flightless birds that scurry about on the forest floor at night. The Maori are a people who fought their British colonists to a standstill in the early 19th century and forced upon them the Treaty of Waitangi, which enshrined terms the envy of […]
