Wind Turbine Problems


Gerretsen sides with the findings of a report released in mid-December. Commissioned by the industry-supported Canadian and American wind energy associations, the study -- Wind turbine sound and health effects, An expert panel review -- suggests wind turbines pose no health risks to people.

I just like this article because of the age-old problem with industry-funded studies. They are sure to find 'no problems'. Now, there may actually be no problems, but the end result of such a study is always the same. If I were to do such a study, I would only measure high-frequency noise, and conveniently 'forget' the infrasonics. :)

And what can the poor little schnooks do? Just bitch and complain.... poor things.
