Malcolm Swinbanks before the Senate Select Committee on Wind Turbines
Dr Swinbanks:  Just briefly, I will review the submission that I made. I addressed four separate issues: first of all, the physical mechanisms for generating low-frequency sound and infrasound; secondly, the mechanisms by which people can perceive such infrasound; thirdly, I commented on the health effects and, in particular, two reports relating to these supposed health effects or the absence of them; and, finally, I gave an account of my own personal experience of adverse effects I have encountered when . . .

Malcolm Swinbanks: Questions Taken on Notice
Q1. You mention the NASA wind turbine research of the 1980s. Is that relevant to the type of wind turbines used today? Research into very large (multi-megawatt) wind turbines began at NASA in 1975. Much of this work was undertaken by very competent aero-acousticians, drawing on experience gained in the context of propeller and jet-engine development, and which has successfully resulted in substantial improvements in aero-engine noise. They identified at an early stage why the existing “downwind rotor” turbines were . . . Complete article »

Laurie, Sarah; and Australia Senate Select Committee on Wind Turbines
Sarah Laurie before the Senate Select Committee on Wind Turbines
Ms Laurie:  Thank you, Senators, for the invitation to attend this Senate inquiry into regulatory issues relating to industrial wind turbines. The systemic regulatory failure with respect to the way industrial and environmental noise pollution is regulated in Australia is not confined to wind turbine noise. As you would have seen from the submissions of the Wollar Progress Association; and residents living near the coalmines in the Upper Hunter region and residents of Lithgow impacted by coal fired power stations . . .
