Wind Turbines: A Major New Noise Report
Just a quick post about a new peer reviewed study, published in a leading academic journal on the effects of wind turbine noise on nearby residents. It has been written by three leading academics. (including Dr Chris Hanning - arguably the worlds leading expert in sleep deprivation)
The study (quicklink) is Here

Basically this study reinforces the the now well founded opinion that wind turbines should be no
nearer than 2Km to residential dwellings.
Needless to say, this report will be vigorously ignored and then denied by the money hungry wind turbine cartel and by their brown nosed apologist fashion loving followers. No doubt we will also hear the hysterical slurs and accusations against the researchers in due course. As has happened before.
Do you seriously think there is a difference between the wind cartel and the tobacco industry? Dream on. If there is one, it is as thick as a cigarette paper.
But at least there are signs that these greedy corporate monsters, who are imposing immense misery on an untold number of communities across our country are now meeting some resistance.
Wiltshire County Council has set a minimum setback distance of 2Km (3Km for large turbines).
(See Here). Good for them. Standing up for your community is exactly what local democracy should be all about. Wiltshire County councillors deserve out applause.
But most of all we should salute Dr Chris Hanning and his colleagues for having the courage to publish.
The opinions and scientific findings of Dr Chris Hanning, Dr Mike Nissenbaum and Dr Jeff Aramini should cause anyone with the slightest moral conscience to pause in of building these useless monsters anywhere near residential dwellings.
Will that happen?
Don't hold your breath.
