INDUSTRIALIZATION DETAILS 1,000 or more wind turbines. 800- to 1,000-foot tall turbines, taller than any building in Boston. 12.9 miles from RI and 8.2 from MA. 1,400 square miles of ocean, 1.5 times the size of RI, will be industrialized. Pile driving into the seabed, heavy diesel vessel traffic, sediment plumes, and detonations of ordinances will harm whales, kill plankton, and reduce fishery stocks. CLIMATE CHANGE “No measurable influence on climate change” will result from these projects, according to the . . .

New regulations of wind energy facilities in Victoria are proposed to ensure that the amenity of local communities is protected and to provide certainty for industry. These will replace interim regulations, which are due to expire in October 2022. What is being proposed? Three alternative approaches to wind farm noise regulation have been assessed in a regulatory impact statement (RIS), prepared by Deloitte Access Economics: No additional regulation – relying on general provisions within the Environment Protection Act 2017 Direct . . .
This project will use the best available measurements of sleep and physiological activation responses to a range of different noise types to carefully test noise impacts on sleep macro-structure (sleep stage distribution and wake time during the sleep period) and sleep micro-structure (brief arousal and physiological activation responses). Participants who take part in the (CATI) and consent to being contacted about potential further involvement in this project, may be approached to take part in this phase of the study. Residents . . .
