Anti-scientist government making soothing sounds about windmills


A study on the noise and health effects of wind turbines will be conducted by Health Canada and Statistics Canada following complaints from people living in the area of such installations.

"This study is in response to questions from residents living near wind farms about possible health effects of low-frequency noise generated by wind turbines," said Minister of Health Leona Aglukkaq in a release Tuesday.

You know they can't possibly do this.  It was always the purpose of gov't scientists to maintain credibility, and to squash possible wild panics.  Everybody now knows that all gov't intellectual capital has been burned.  There will next be a nuclear panic, and a food safety scare.

It's been a long time since I tilted at windmills, those horrible things.  Under the right circumstances, the whole wind farm can produce powerful infrasound, much like our famous Windsor Hum.  This is well known from seismic monitoring, but all our seismic monitoring is in the hands of muzzled scientists.

We should get a handle on this infrasound, how far it travels, etc.  Then we should emulate it for a few days on some healthy volunteers, and watch their liver enzymes go wacky.  No so difficult.
