We have spent almost one year attempting to understand the complexities of wind energy. We have researched the potential benefits and acknowledged deficiencies of industrial wind turbines. We have tried to educate citizens on Cape Cod and in Massachusetts about industrial wind energy. We have tried to foster public debate, through the formation of a Cape-wide group that has sponsored public presentations by relevant experts and has disseminated technical engineering reports, clinical medical research on adverse impacts, detailed acoustic studies of the special characteristics of wind turbine noise, relevant environmental information and numerous news reports and first-person testimonials from around the world to local, state and regional governments and agencies and to the general public.
Now after traveling to Australia and meeting with and interviewing dozens of people who have been profoundly adversely impacted by industrial wind turbines or are fighting the construction of wind turbines in their communities, we now understand with certainty that the very dramatic and real problems with wind energy are much, much worse than we had previously imagined.
What follows is a preliminary summary of our visit in Australia. …
