A Review by Stuart Young Consulting (Stuart Young is Chair of the Caithness Windfarm Information Forum) www.caithnesswindfarms.co.uk/SchoolsReport.htm An independent expert review of the safety of putting wind turbines on school premises is essential. Current control measures require head teachers to leave the classroom and venture forth to take windspeed readings and shut down turbines in Hurricane Force wind speeds when “debris and unsecured objects are hurled about”. Highland Council recommend exclusion zones for safety reasons – e.g. fall, topple, ejection . . .

Source: Ill Wind Reporting
Ill Wind Reporting looks to uncover and document the many instances of negative effects from wind developments in rural communities. The web site is available for all to use. If you are negatively impacted by industrial wind turbines please submit a report for each incident you experience. If you think you will be submitting more than 1 report, please create a user account. Ill Wind Reporting is sponsored by an ad hoc group of individuals in Ontario, Canada, who are . . .

The purpose of the study is to assess the impact of wind farm developments and the attitudes of the rural population who are subject to developments globally. Your participation will assist in the understanding of issues associated with wind farm developments which may provide assistance with policy development. This study is being conducted by Darryl Read an Honours candidate enrolled in the School of Behavioural and Cognitive Sciences at the University of New England and is supervised by Dr Einar . . .
